We Welcome International Students to Forrest Hill School  

We provide quality study programmes for students who are 5 - 11 years old. 

Students can complete short or long term study programmes.

  • Students are placed in mainstream classes with New Zealand students of the same age.

  • Each day they attend the English language learning class where they learn to read, write and speak in English. 

  • The school employs an experienced English language teacher and all international students spend an hour and a half in this class.

  • Mrs Smith, the English Language teacher, provides pastoral care for all International Students.

  • The students get to know each other well and develop special friendships with the help of Mrs Smith.

" The school has sound, well-documented procedures around the identification of English Language Learners' learning needs and the prioritisation of ESOL support (to them)."  

" . . . it was a pleasure to observe the excellent provision the school is making for its English Language Learners with such dedicated, knowledgeable professionals."

International students particpate in all aspects of school life.
