Tauranga Boys' College is a state secondary school for boys, located on the edge of the downtown area of Tauranga. Founded in 1958, the College has gained a national reputation as one the best state boys' schools in New Zealand. It is a caring, supportive community which encourages students to develop their potential to the full.
The College values the goodness of tradition, encourages excellence in all things and it provides the opportunities for boys to expand their range of skills and abilities as they work through the process of becoming good men. Most importantly, it has set standards for boys to aspire to over its 50 years.
The school offers a wide range of modern facilities, reflecting the diversity of opportunities available to its students. These facilities include modern, networked classrooms and Science laboratories, a modern Gymnasium/Sports Hall complex, an ESOL centre, extensive sports fields, and all-weather Hockey and Tennis facilities. The school recently opened a multi-million dollar Performing Arts Centre.
Our vision is to be a school:
which is the first choice for parents who want their sons to excel
where the whole ethos is one where academic, sporting, and cultural achievement are valued
where good discipline and a sense of order are recognised
where students are central to achievement and staff are an integral part of that environment
which is at the forefront of worthwhile educational development
We are proud of our school's heritage and look forward to the future. If you are a parent considering Tauranga Boys' College for your son's education, I hope that you will become a part of this future and experience something of the "spirit" of this fine College. I would like to extend a warm welcome to all newly enrolled students and their families. Naumai haere mai.
