International Students

We offer opportunities for International Students aged 5 to 13 to study on a short-term basis from one week, up to their full eight years of their primary and intermediate education.

We have high expectations for our students at Stanhope Road School and this includes our International Students and we encourage them to do their best while they at Stanhope Road School. As a school, we are committed to encouraging and helping each individual to achieve, to the best of their ability during their time in New Zealand.

All International Students have full inclusion in all aspects of learning, receiving the identical high-quality programme and opportunities received by all other students.

  • To provide a quality programme for International Students seeking to learn English.
  • To increase the international awareness of Stanhope Road School students.
  • To enhance the cultural diversity of Stanhope Road School.
  • Provide a broader funding base to enhance learning programmes for all students at Stanhope Road School


Stanhope Road School has agreed to observe and be bound by the Code of Practice for the Pastoral Care of International Students. Copies of the Code are available on request from the NZQA Website.
