Welcome

Welcome. Nau mai, haere mai.

We offer this website as a window on who we are and what we do.

The provision of high-quality teaching and learning is our priority at Timaru Boys’. We want our students to receive the best opportunity to develop in an inclusive and stimulating environment that is designed to meet their needs as young men. Our focus is on the enrichment of each boy so that he experiences personal growth and excellence, to position him well for ongoing learning and success. We want him to develop both his ‘heart’ and ‘mind’ and a sense of purpose and progression. We aim to build character as well as talent. Our core values drive high achievement and instil the attributes of good men. Qualities that underpin a Timaru Boys’ education include: respect for self and others, responsibility, integrity, excellence, participation, and the development of an enquiring mind. In all areas of endeavour and conduct, expectations are high, achievement is celebrated, and strong relationships are forged.

We have a rich heritage and proud identity that reaches back to 1880. Timaru Boys’ High school has always been at the forefront of education regionally and nationally. Our past gives us anchorage as we embrace the modern age.

The school also offers a broad range of activities outside the classroom in sport, culture and the arts. Co-curricular programmes, especially competitive team or group activities, give our students important challenges; boys can contribute and thrive in different contexts and enjoy aspects of the school spirit.

Join us at Timaru Boys’ High School.
