A former school principal jailed for eight years over the sexual abuse of students has had his first bid for parole declined.

Elvis Dobson Shepherd, 52, was convicted in 2010 for sexual offending against two young male victims while teaching at Hato Petera College, a Maori Catholic boarding school on Auckland's North Shore between 1990 and 1994.

He will be seen by the parole board again in July next year after an updated psychologist assessment report.
