Napier Boys' High School is one of the oldest schools in New Zealand. It has a proud record of academic achievement, sporting prowess, cultural excellence and grounding in traditional values.

As a boys' school, we place paramount emphasis on academic success. This is reflected in the importance placedon the teaching and learning environment, streaming, homework, assessments, examinations and staff development.

A balance of young and experienced staff ensures that all aspects of the school's life remain energetic and vital, yet stable and consistent. These qualities also impact on the very strong sporting and cultural dimensions in which staff and students are heavily involved, and with a high level of success.

We convey traditional values and attitudes through strict discipline, formal assemblies and high expectations. Staff expect no less from our students in terms of punctuality, courtesy, attendance, dress and grooming, and work standards than an employer would. These values are reinforced by the leadership offered by our hostel family, Scinde House, which gives Napier Boys' High School a unique flavour

Above all Napier Boys' High School is a school that is enjoyed by students, staff and the greater school community.
