Welcome to Kaipara College

Kaipara College warmly welcomes international students. As well as offering a wide range of subjects and co-curricular activities, we offer many special features to meet the needs of students from other countries.

Students are welcome to our school either for short-term or long-term study. We provide an excellent ESOL programme, a special system of pastoral care, and recreational activities which ensure that international students gain full benefit from their time in New Zealand.

Kaipara College is located in the town of Helensville, on the North West edge of Auckland. It is one hour from Auckland’s International Airport and is a 40 minute drive from the center of the city. It has the best of the New Zealand countryside, while being very close to the city. Our students come from small communities and townships within the horticulture and farming regions, right on the edge of the city. People living in the area can easily get to the city and enjoy its facilities, while living close to beaches, golf courses and open spaces.

Below is a lovely video made by one of our international students. In it she shares her experiences. We are looking forward to meeting you and hopefully having your child join the Kaipara College family.
