The International Department


The School has been accepting international students since the 1990s. Party to the NZQA Code of Practice, we pride ourselves on the exceptional care, guidance and opportunity, afforded by four dedicated staff in the International Department.

By offering places for only twenty five international students we are able to offer extremely personalised care and management, in a genuine atmosphere of learning.
