International Student Support
All International students come under the pastoral care of the Director of International Students. The Director is available at all times for enquiries, advice or support; parents and students are welcome to make contact at any time.
Housemasters of boarding and day houses are also available for assistance and contact is welcomed and encouraged
Growth through Understanding
With the world becoming increasingly smaller, the value of a St Paul’s education and the reciprocal value of our New Zealand students learning from International Students are immeasurable.
St Paul’s welcomes the opportunity to have a number of International Students amongst its student body at all levels, either as boarders or day students in homestay accommodation.
We believe in the importance of traditional values such as honesty, respect, care and understanding. We provide a safe and secure environment where students can concentrate on their learning and develop their individual talents.
All International Students need to have a basic understanding of English. Students in Years 11 to 13 need to be able to work at approximately Intermediate level or higher. ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Lan-guages) support and tuition is available at all levels for those who need it.
Students may start at any stage during the year but we prefer senior students to start at the beginning of the academic year (February) if possible.
All International Students come under the pastoral care of the Director of International Students.
