Southland Boys’ High School sits deeply within the Southland community and is committed to producing the quality of young man that Southland, NZ and the world needs to lead it into the future. The curriculum here is based on being connected and contextual and looks to show the young men under our staff’s guidance the number of opportunities that are open to them in their future.  As a school, we are committed to adapting to the modern world without losing the traditional.

Sport and cultural activities sit with academics and provide the essential balance of life for our young men during their time here comradery  gained from competition and house activities will stay with them into their adulthood.

“Studies and research have consistently shown that boys achieve at a higher level in a boys only environment when compared to their peers in a co-educational environment” and so by choosing SBHS as a parent you are maximising the opportunities for your young man’s future.

Please do not hesitate to ask any questions and take the opportunities to tour the school at any time by contacting the school office on 03 211 3003.

Boarding at SBHS

“The hostel was one of the best places that I spent my time with my mates and teachers because we were one big family that I always believed in. I spent the past few years talking, sharing, eating, enjoying and respecting one another. Thanks to Matron and the staff which made this possible… I always felt warmth and happiness when I stepped inside this fantastic place.”
