Welcome to Hastings Boys' High School

Headmaster's Comment


Hastings Boys' High School, established at the beginning of last century, has remained a central focus of learning for students in the Hawke's Bay. With its timeless character of the original buildings, the interior represents the new millennium with first class facilities, specialist teaching rooms equipped with all the modern facilities required to prepare students for a successful future.

Hastings Boys' is viewed as a traditional school with its emphasis on discipline, respect and tolerance of others and I welcome this perception. Within this traditional foundation every student has the opportunity to succeed through the use of the most modern systems and technologies and innovative teaching and learning programmes.

The course structure which we will offer in 2015 builds on a basis which has been progressive yet balanced.  It will continue to offer a good range of options at all year levels and it will expand upon the vocational directed courses offered to Years 12 and 13. All students will be enabled to work to the best of their abilities and the determination of the school is to provide every opportunity for them to do this.
