Palmerston North Boys’ High School


Principal's Message

Ours is a traditional single sex school catering for the all round educational needs of young men.

Our school ethos is formed on a desire to learn, to participate, to compete at the highest levels and fulfill one's potential.

The young men at Palmerston North Boys' High School are encouraged to achieve in the classroom and to combine this success with involvement in sporting and cultural activities. This balance enables them to be challenged, extended and motivated in many facets of real life, preparing them for their pathway beyond Palmerston North Boys' High School. The school roll is approximately 1630, allowing diversity in subjects and extra curricular activities. Our staff are committed professionals with a depth of knowledge and talent to educate students in a school with first class facilities.

David Bovey
