Nau mai, haere mai

At Christ’s College, we get boys. We are New Zealand’s only independent school for boys from Years 9 to 13. We understand what makes boys tick. We enjoy their energy, humour, ideas, and zest for life. We celebrate boys and we teach in ways they learn best. We are committed to our mission – 'Each boy at his best' – as all aspire to reach their full potential.

Bring our heritage into the light

Annual Appeal 2023

Right now, the heritage that has shaped us is hidden in the dark. It’s time to bring it into the light. Help us to create a place – packed with stories, treasures, and memories – where we can share our 175 years. This year’s Annual Appeal aims to raise funds for the furnishment of the Christ’s College Museum in time for our 175-year celebrations in 2025. Please help us preserve our heritage and bring it into the light to benefit generations to come.
