“Growing good boys into great men”

School house has provided a home to boys from the Otago region and further afield for many years.  Being part of our boarding community will provide your son not only with the support to achieve academically, but to gain a social education as well, learning how to function effectively in the community, to get along with others and to practise courtesy and co-operation.

We endeavour to create an environment where your son will feel at home and excel. Discipline and structure will provide the backbone to hostel life, while social events and extracurricular activities and will provide a gratifying, stimulating atmosphere.

Your son will emerge from School House as a great young man of integrity and character, inspired and educated academically and socially, prepared to face the next chapter of his life.
