Supporting students through high expectations

We are a team of six comprising of four ESOL teachers delivering English programmes from beginner level to NCEA Level 2, working alongside two International Directors that provide Guardianship and academic support to our students.

Learning English is the first major challenge for every student joining us from overseas. It allows them to study in mainstream academic classes, and to mix more freely with the New Zealand students. The ESOL team place students into mainstream as soon as they believe that they are ready. Regular testing and team meetings help inform discussions and decision making.

We aim to offer complete peace of mind to our international parents. We have very high expectations for our students helped by small class sizes which allows us to monitor progress very closely. We maintain regular contact with parents and agents and understand the importance of responding to concerns quickly and professionally. Academic tracking is done weekly, and any concerns reported as soon as possible.

As we are a genuine 7-day boarding school, our students are engaged not only during the week but also at the weekend. We have campus-wide wireless internet making it easy to keep in touch with family back home. We have an international student committee which represents the interests of our overseas students and arranges fun activities throughout the school year. 

The International Team looks forward to welcoming your son or daughter to our multi-cultural campus and we encourage you to read through our prospectus for a more detailed look at what we have to offer.
