Cambridge is known as “The Town of Trees & Champions”

. Cambridge is New Zealand’s ‘Cycling Central’- It offers the best indoor track cycling, and a network of top road cycle trails. Cambridge is also the centre for all New Zealand’s Olympic rowing athletes.
Cambridge was awarded the title of New Zealand’s Most Beautiful Large Town in 2019.

Cambridge High School (CHS) is a co-educational school established in 1883 – it has a proud tradition of academic and sporting achievement. CHS has hosted international students since the 1990’s. Our dedicated and experienced international support staff ensure international students have a great experience while studying at school. Academic progress and student welfare is closely monitored. We have a wide range of sporting activities, academic choices, and international student trips available at school for our students to take part in.

After 6 months, I feel really sad to be leaving Cambridge High School and New Zealand and of course all of my Kiwi friends.



What makes us unique?

Cambridge is the Number 1 School in New Zealand for Cycling!
Cycling is a multifaceted sport at Cambridge High School, offering the disciplines of Road, Track and Mountain biking with accessibility to BMX also. Cyclocross has now also been added. The local velodrome enables riders the opportunity to utilise regular track time to develop strength and power unimpeded by the fickle winter weather. Mountain biking is on offer in Terms 1 and 4 when the local track is at its best and dirt can be carved up. This discipline is split on the school calendar with Road Cycling where road rides are offered on Thursday for those keen to head out on the quiet country roads learning skill and developing techniques. Cambridge High School has an impressive number of riders representing the school regionally and nationally.
Cambridge is also a top rowing school with access to top coaches and world class facilities at nearby Lake Karipiro.

We love studying at Cambridge High School and we will never forget this memorable time of our lives.
