Accommodation

homestay coordinatorThe school requires all International Students to stay in homestays or with a school approved designated caregive.  We do not have a boarding establishment but use very responsible agencies to organise the homestay accommodation.

Homestay fees for 2019 are $NZ15,530  (this includes 46 weeks Homestay and Homestay Placement/Pastoral Care fee of $1,730. The school employs a Homestay Co-ordinator to oversee the Homestay Programme and ensure that students are happy and well cared for in their homestays.

Jenny Goodwin, Homestay Co-ordinator with Belle.

Fees 2019

Fees for our international students are NZ$16,000 per annum, which is broken down as - the tuition fee of NZ$14,500 payable in advance, and an Administration fee of $1500 (not refundable).  Fees are subject to annual review. There are no extra fees for ESOL classes.

The Homestay Fee of NZ$15,530 in total per annum is payable in advance and is subject to annual review. The homestay fee should must be paid into the school bank account with Tuition Fees on acceptance of an offer of place. 

In addition to this fee, there is a $1,730 Homestay Placement and Pastoral Care Fee. In the unlikely event that a student needs to change her homestay family there is a further Replacement Fee of $200.
If living expenses are deposited into the school account for distribution, an administration cost of $300 will be charged.

Designated Care Fee is $1,380.   All fees are in New Zealand dollars. Designated Care fees apply where students live with an approved family member instead of a Homestay family organised by the school. These fees are to be paid into the school bank account with Tuition Fees on acceptance of Offer of Place.
