Palmerston North Boys' High School New Zealand Seeks Agent Partnerships

Palmerston North Boys' High School

Founded in 1902, Palmerston North Boys' High School is a traditional boys' school whose vision is to Develop Educated Men of Outstanding Character. Since 1902, we have grown to become a multi-cultural school of more than 1,700 young men. Our vision emphasises two key aspects of what we do at PNBHS – an emphasis on academic achievement and on providing character education.

The young men at PNBHS are encouraged to achieve in the classroom and to combine this with sporting and cultural activities. This balance will enable them to be challenged and extended in a range of areas, helping prepare them for life beyond our gates.

Our school is an environment where our young men are able to grow and learn from their mistakes, where they are held accountable and where they are encouraged to do their best. Young men, by their very nature, are competitive and we seek to encourage that in everything they do. We are very proud of the committed staff here at PNBHS: more than 100 classroom teachers, all of whom are involved in the school's co-curricular programme. The relationships built in cultural and sporting activities translate to positive relationships in the classroom, and we know that young men thrive in an educational setting where relationships are positive.

“Our vision emphasises two key aspects of what we do at PNBHS – an emphasis on academic achievement and on providing character education.”

As a boys' school, we firmly believe in the benefits of a single sex education. A focus on what works for boys, on how boys learn and on the importance of all-round education for boys, is at the heart of what we do. Research has shown that boys achieve significantly better at boys' schools than boys at co-educational schools and this is evident in the school's NCEA and scholarship results.

Our involvement in the Super Eight Schools organisation provides further opportunities to compete at the highest level, both on the sports field and on the stage.

The Old Boys' community is an important part of the school. Our young men build on the success of those who have been through PNBHS. We are proud of the links we have with our Old Boys the world over who enjoy following the achievements of the young men currently at their school.

Today's young men also build on our school's tradition and reputation. Those young men who choose to come to PNBHS and who embrace the ethos, get involved and do their best, will achieve success and will add to the success of the school. And, importantly, they will leave as good men, men of outstanding character.
