Christ’s College

Founded in 1850, Christ’s College is housed in a magnificent precinct of buildings designed by the City’s leading architects over a 140 year period. Set around an open quadrangle the complex contains the oldest school building still in use in the country - the 1863 Big School by J.E. Fitzgerald. Earthquake strengthening ensured the retention of the school’s many heritage buildings, and an extensive repair and strengthening programme is underway to address the damage that occurred. Under repair.
