St. Patrick's Christian Brothers College, Bulawayo (CBC) is a private multiracial boys-only high school located in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe. It was founded in the 1950s and is one of the most prestigious schools in Bulawayo, and probably one of the best schools in the country.
The school was founded by the Irish Christian Brothers who trace their origins to Edmund Ignatius Rice. It is a Roman Catholic school, however it is run largely by lay staff and non-Catholics have attended the school.
CBC is one of the most competitive schools in the country in sports such as rugby union, water polo, track , field and hockey. Each year several students are selected for junior Zimbabwe teams. Falcon College is probably CBC's greatest rival in sport.
