Other Information: Burnside High School is one of the largest secondary schools in New Zealand with approximately 2,600 students and 200 staff. This enables it to offer students an exceptional range of courses with specialist teachers and resources. The school values excellence and encourages all students to achieve at the highest possible level. As a result, achievement levels in senior examinations are amongst the highest in the country. Burnside High School is located in the North West of Christchurch and is fortunate to have large attractive grounds and superb facilities. These include a large purpose built performing arts centre, extensive courts, gymnasium, swimming pool and sports fields, so that students have the opportunity to be involved in a wide range of extra curricula activities. The school is divided into four Divisions, each with its own Divisional Principal, Deans and Guidance Counsellor, so that students effectively are part of a school of up to 700, where they are known and cared for as individuals. Burnside High School prides itself in offering students a safe, caring, well disciplined learning environment that promotes consideration for others. Burnside High School has a very attractive, large campus of 16.2 hectares (40 acres) with trees, gardens, courtyards and expansive sports fields. The school has two gymnasiums, an athletics track, an outdoor swimming pool for summer use, and a new library and administration complex. The 700 seat Aurora Center for the Performing Arts is not only used by the school but extensively by the Christchurch community for Music and Drama performances or meetings. Burnside High School buildings are functional, modern and well maintained with specialist rooms for most subjects. The school is constantly upgrading the grounds and facilities. Every classroom has a data projector for teaching and learning. Students at the school are encouraged to keep their enviroment tidy and be respectful of the grounds and classrooms. The academic achievements of students at Burnside High School are the envy of other schools and students throughout New Zealand. Each year Burnside High School is among the leading schools in examination results. We are particularly well known for our outstanding Music Programme as well as Visual Arts, Mathematics and Computing. For these reasons Burnside High School attracts many students who are academically very able. The school has a focus on achievement and success in academic programmes and encourages students to strive for personal excellence. One of the many advantages of being a large school is that we are able to offer a wide range of subject options. Students can try different subjects as options in the junior school and find out what they are good at and interested in, something that is very important to do at Secondary School level. Our innovative subject programmes lead, progressively, to senior levels where students are prepared for entry to university. At the same time we also cater for students with talents in other areas. We encourage all students to discover their talents, and to develop them to their full potential. Many Burnside High School students are awarded scholarships at Universities both in New Zealand and overseas.
