Ōtaki College has a lot to offer international students. The College offers many opportunities for overseas students to mix with our students in cultural, sporting and language activities. In this way the language comes alive for them and they also get to know about New Zealand customs. Ōtaki College adheres to the Ministry of Education Code of Practice.

Many International Students are attracted to Ōtaki College to take part in the very successful Outdoor Education option.

Students: Who are the International Students who come to Ōtaki College?

International Students are looked after by Mr Howard Manins (Director of International Education). Ōtaki College has many features, which make it a suitable school for students from other countries. It has 475 boys and girls between the ages of 11 and 18 and has the following aspects:
  • Individual attention - many of our senior classes contain fewer than nine students so each student receives extra contact with the teacher
  • Ideal location combining town and country. Only 55 minutes away to the South is New Zealand's capital city of Wellington with its International Airport
  • Wide range of subjects and excellent teaching
  • Carefully selected home-stays and close links with the community
  • Individual needs-based English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL). Japanese and Chinese speakers are available for counselling, if required
