Our college aims to deliver a sporting programme that achieves:

Opportunities are provided for boys to be involved in an extensive interschool programme, in particular the Super Eight Schools competition.

Here at TBC, we have an enviable national record across a range of sports. Teams consistently finish in the top 5 at NZSS Championships and we have achieved several National Titles. Our Old Boys’ include such sporting greats as Peter Burling (Americas Cup and Olympic Champion), Kane Williamson (Black Caps Captain), Sam Cane, Nathan Harris (All Blacks), Mahe Drysdale (Olympic Champion) to name a few.
