New Plymouth Boys' High School has a proud history of producing outstanding swimmers and surf lifesavers.

The pinnacle of our swimming season is the school Swimming Sports competition, held in February. This event is not just about swimming but also a spirited battle for house honours. It's a highly popular day where the entire school turns out in vibrant house colors, often with a touch of costume flair. Our best swimmers represent the school at national level.
