“Auckland is New Zealand’s largest and most diverse city. An urban environment where everyone lives within half an hour of beautiful beaches, hiking trails and many beautiful islands.

The region is home to around 1.5 million people with a sunny moderate climate and magnificent natural scenery. Outstanding food, and shopping create a vibrant city lifestyle.

New Zealand's Auckland region has 48 volcanic cones, dramatic black sand beaches in the west and sheltered golden sand beaches and islands in the east. It is a safe, friendly, multicultural place to live.

More than just a city, Auckland is a whole region full of things to see and do.”

Extra curricular activities:

All students are encouraged to join a club or activity at our school. For International students this is an excellent way to make new friends, enjoy new experiences and practise English. If we don’t have an activity available at the school, we can help you find a local club.
