The school enrols a limited number of international students, a limit of 75 at any one time. Parents can expect that the students who come to study here will join New Zealand classes and make New Zealand friends. They live in New Zealand homes as part of our families and are well looked after.

School Facilities

There are specialist rooms for art, music, workshop technology, home economics, languages, physical education, computing as well as science laboratories and a large well-stocked library centre. The school is set in extensive grounds with swimming pool, gymnasiums, tennis and netball courts and sports fields.

Other Activities

Students are encouraged to take part in cultural and sports activities. Swimming, sailing and other water sports are important, as the sea and harbour are so close. There are many active school teams in all sporting codes as well as fitness activities in the school gymnasium and community Action Centre.

The school has a strong tradition in art and music, (there is a choir and several instrumental groups), and its productions are renowned for their high quality.
