Hornby High School has a long tradition of welcoming and supporting students from all over the world, being one of the first schools in Christchurch to provide for international students. Hornby High School offers a multicultural, inclusive, caring environment in which international students are made very welcome. We are committed to the well-being and academic achievement of all students.
Hornby is a major residential and retail suburb at the western edge of Christchurch. The school is situated about 9km from the Christchurch vibrant re-developing city central business district, and is close to the International and Domestic Airport. Also, few locations give such easy access to an amazing variety of scenery. With mountains, rivers and beaches less than an hour from the city, activities like surfing, swimming, cycling, walking, skiing and snowboarding are a big part of the Christchurch lifestyle.
