Hamilton Boys' High School


Welcome to the first edition of the High Achiever for 2024. Our HBHS high achievers were hard at work during the summer holidays, winning titles both here and abroad. We also congratulated our senior leaders for this year and our academic stars, and are hugely proud of the 89 Scholarship passes, with 7 at Outstanding, that our Class of 2023 achieved. We hope you enjoy our coverage of the first two months of what is already shaping up to be a fantastic year.
