We accept around 30 international 
Years 9-13 students a year from a range of countries such as Korea, China, Japan, Thailand and Hong Kong.
In many cases, international students come to New Zealand to improve their English.  Others may come here for family reasons or to complete qualifications to gain entry into a university.

International students choose homestay accommodation to help learn English faster and for the family environment. For many students, this may be their first time away from home, in another country and responsible for themselves.  It may take the student a while to settle in as they adjust to a new family, culture and school.
