Our school has a long and proud history in our city. Established over 90 years ago, our school has developed to meet the needs of students throughout the years, and offers innovative future-focused curriculum, high academic standards and a broad range of co-curricular activities that enrich school life for students. Our highly qualified and experienced staff encourage girls to excel in a positive and focused learning environment.
Following the devastation of the 2011 Christchurch earthquakes, Avonside Girls’ High School has been rebuilt on a new co-located site, sharing the Orua Paeroa campus with partner school, Shirley Boys’ High School, with each school retaining its unique culture and identity and teaching spaces but sharing some key facilities. Just one year into operation, the schools’ facilities are the envy of many and staff and students alike enjoy the opportunities the new campus offers.
