Welcome to Carruth House at Whangarei Boys’ High School. Our mission here at Carruth House is simply to help boys grow into fine young men while obtaining the knowledge they will need in order to become strong, productive members of society. We are here to help them develop academically as well as socially, physically and culturally. Our team of Housemasters, catering personal and Matron are committed to working in unison with the school staff to facilitate this.
While living here, boys take advantage of the quality academic, sporting, cultural and leadership opportunities WBHS has on offer.  We offer our boarders a home with traditional values; promoting excellence, integrity, loyalty, respect and high standards of personal conduct.
We believe that boarding school develops, independence and self-discipline, social and interpersonal skills by living with others, good study habits, self-confidence and life-long friendships.
If you are interested in boading at Whangarei Boys’ High School, please get in touch with me. We are always keen to show visitors around.
