There are two lasting bequests we can give our children – roots (where one comes from and what one believes); and wings (the ability to leave the nest and fly).

The home-school relationship is highly valued at Shirley Boys’ High School and open communication is encouraged. Through the parent portal, parents and caregivers have access to information about their son’s timetable, attendance, results, reports and fees, as well as the daily notices.

New Uniform

In 2015, the Board of Trustees approved a new school uniform and supplier. The new uniform is compulsory for Year 9s from 2016 onwards and as existing students replace items, they will be expected to purchase the new uniform.

Uniform Group is the new supplier of Shirley Boys’ High School uniform. They have a shop located at Unit 3/403 Worcester Street, Christchurch as well as an online webshop for your convenience. For more information please go to
