International Information

Kia Ora,

Welcome to Southland Boys’ High School and thank you for considering us as an educational option.

Southland Boys’ High School is proud of the relationships it has built over time with the international schooling community, its families and associated agents.

The Board of Southland Boys’ High School has made the decision that the school will not be able to accept homestay or hostel based international students at present.

This decision is brought about by the following factors:

  • Our boarding hostel, Coldstream House, is at capacity with domestic students. This is its primary function in support of the wider Southland community, and so no places could be offered to international students.
  • The programme will not be sufficiently covered by staffing during the school year to support the pastoral care of the boys whilst in the homestay environment.
  • The board wishes to evaluate a full financial viability proposal before continuing.

The ongoing programme will be developed with a mind for a full review by the board looking into a relaunch based on a sound strategic plan which fits the Southland Boys’ High School vision.

My thanks go to you for your understanding of this decision and I look forward to working with you into the future.

Please do not hesitate to contact the Rector, Simon Coe [+64 3 211 3003] if you wish to discuss future enrolment at Southland Boys’ High School
