There are many scholarships available to assist in gaining your education.
Ministry of Education Boarding Allowances
The Ministry of Education offers generous boarding allowances for secondary school students. However, it is best to obtain up-to-date information directly from the Ministry of Education web-site (www.minedu.govt.nz) with regard to these boarding allowances, due to the Ministry changing eligibility criteria from time to time.
J R McKenzie Youth Education Fund
Grants normally cover uniform, stationery, footwear and other expenses. Application forms are available from the Headmaster’s EA.
Clement Cave Scholarship
These boarding scholarships are offered to boys with ability. They are valued at one term’s fee and are tenable for one year and may be reviewed depending on academic progress and behaviour. Candidates will be either in Year 8 in the year of application and must sit examinations in English and Mathematics during the month of August, or will be enrolled in the school and selection will be based on academic progress and general involvement. Special consideration will be given to boys with sporting or cultural ability or both. Application forms are available from the Headmaster’s EA and, in the case of Year 8 applicants, must be completed and in the hands of the Headmaster by July 31 and, in the case of boys already enrolled in the school, by October 31.
NB – Boys eligible for state bursaries are not, in general, eligible for a Cave Scholarship.

- Any student that will contribute positively to the school and is the example; and/or
- Any student where cost is a significant barrier to them attending NPBHS.
