Welcome to Hornby High School

Hornby High School is a place where student learning and success matter. At our school every student is known and valued as an individual, and personalised pathways – academic, cultural, sporting – are created.

We are proud to be a diverse, friendly school and a place where the needs of each individual student are addressed. We are proud to be a school where all students can make their mark and set their direction for life after secondary school.

Hornby High Student and the SVA

Hornby High School students pitch in to help Christchurch community. An area of wetland damaged by fire in 2014 was restored to its former glory with help from Hornby High students and the University of Canterbury Student Volunteer Army (SVA). In 2014, vandals drove a car into Halswell Quarry destroying an area of native planting before setting fire to a section of boardwalk.

In March students from Hornby High, alongside the UC SVA, took on the restoration project as part of the SVA’s UCan volunteer programme and in the space of a few hours transformed the wetland area. The UCan programme encourages local secondary students to become leaders in their communities through volunteering while being mentored by SVA members.
