English as a Second Language (ESOL)

The ESOL classes cater for the English language learning needs of international students. We have four levels enabling students to study at the right level for them. All international students have the opportunity to have eight classes of ESOL per week according to their needs.

Senior Level

At senior level the students sit NCEA assessments in ESOL and English to gain credits towards their New Zealand high school qualification. They are taught all literacy skills in small classes of no more than 10 students.

University Entrance

Students who want to attend university are given the opportunity to study English level two for university entrance. There is also an after school IELTS class for extra study for students keen to secure this exam.
