International - English

ESOL Students

All international students must have a basic level of English before coming to Kerikeri High School. Students who are not native English speakers take special English classes.

Your English ability will be assessed when you start school and you will be put into an appropriate ESOL class (English for Speakers of Other Languages). These classes are taught by a qualified ESOL teacher and cover the New Zealand English curriculum.

You will take all other classes alongside the New Zealand students.
