Unique features

Cambridge High School is a co-educational state school founded in 1883 and dedicated to providing the highest quality of education for its students.
Cambridge High School is sited on 8.5 hectares of attractively planted, spacious grounds close to town, in semi-rural surroundings. Cambridge offers a mild climate, a safe beautiful environment, and yet is only 15 minutes by car from Hamilton City, home of Waikato University, and 1.5 hours by car from Auckland International Airport.
Students from Cambridge High School have established a highly successful record at Waikato University and other New Zealand and overseas tertiary institutions.
The school prides itself in offering a balance of academic, sporting and cultural opportunities. We have welcomed international students since 1989 and value their presence in our school.
