Riccarton High School - Christchurch



The school is located in the north-western suburbs of Christchurch. About 29% of our students were born overseas (from 36 different countries) and we enjoy the multicultural richness that this brings to the school. We are proud of our reputation as a school that serves international students well.
Riccarton High School facilities are second to none. Our spacious park-like grounds (10 hectares) provide excellent recreational sporting and relaxation opportunities for all students. Tree-shaded buildings house excellent classroom facilities.     In recent years a lot of upgrading and renovation of specialist facilities has occurred (Science, Technology, Performing Arts and Gymnasium areas). In addition the Ministry of Education has funded 13 new general or specialist classrooms. Perhaps the most innovative development is the school's partnership with the Christchurch City Council to build a large school/ community library at the school.The school is very well equipped with information technology, and our students enjoy the benefits that this brings to their learning. Riccarton High School is recognised as a school that is at the forefront in enhancing learning through the use of information technology.
