The latest Hereworth Highlights newsletter gives you a taste of what our boys have been up to so far this term. Contact us if you’d like a hard copy mailed out to you.
Staff are focused on developing the whole boy – the learner; the sportsman; the chorister; the musician; the global citizen…the list is endless but we strive to equip boys with the skills and strategies they will need to thrive beyond the Hereworth gates.
Opting out is not an option for Hereworth’s senior boys; they are all expected to try everything, from auditioning for the choir to taking part in Oral English and Speech competitions, and representing the school in sport. This gives boys the opportunity to be seen in their personal area of strength by our teaching staff who also lead these extra activities.
Leadership skills are developed and while being made a Prefect or House Captain in Year 8 is the ultimate accolade, most boys will step into a leadership role as a squad leader, or as a dorm leader in the boarding house. Boys who have passion or leadership in a specific area get the opportunity to work as a ‘manager’ in that area. Badges and Colours are awarded. They are highly sought after, and worn on blazers as symbols of recognition and achievement.

All boys in Year 7 and 8 have a two week annual boarding experience which gives them an insight into living away from home, and for those who will board at college or high school it is the ideal preparation.
The boys benefit from Science, Technology, Art, Music, Drama, Hauora and Languages (Te Reo Māori and Japanese) all being taught by specialist teachers who are experts in their field.
Our expectations of Hereworth boys are high. Manners are paramount, self-discipline is instilled and uniform is worn with pride. Competition is considered healthy and success is celebrated: Hereworth boys know how lucky they are to attend such a unique school!
