Southland Boys’ High School stands apart from the crowd by offering the lessons of the past in a contemporary manner. Established in 1881 we are a boys’ only school that caters to 1000 students from 10 to 18 years old. We offer a high standard of academic excellence that targets the specific needs of male learners. We only teach boys and as such we are experts in the field of boys’ education. Your son will be able to study a range of academic subjects and supplement them with our award winning music and drama department, or by participating in one or more of the 100 different sporting options offered by the school. Your son will be able to stay in a choice of accommodation; either our hostel where he will be able to live along side 120 other boys his own age and develop lasting and powerful friendships. Or he can choose to stay at one of our carefully selected homestay options, where he will be treated as a valued member of their family. Your son will be supported while at school by the Director of International Students who will meet with him for 30 minutes each day to discuss his academic progress and social wellbeing.
