More Information

One Tree Hill College is a co-educational secondary school very conveniently located in central Auckland city: only 15 minutes from the International Airport and the Central Business District, close to all transport services and several large shopping centres and only 2 kilometres away from One Tree Hill Domain where there is an operational farm.

Although originally established in 1955, a NZ$15 million property upgrade was completed in 2009. This exciting modernisation of our plant has enabled our students to access the best educational facilities including high specification specialist rooms, a state of the art computer network and a vastly improved learning environment. Classrooms are supported by the provision of the latest in productivity software.

The school is NZQA accredited and offers a full range of academic courses through to the National Certificate of Educational Achievement (NCEA) Level 3 and scholarship. The school insists on high levels of behaviour and discipline. Anti-social behaviour is not tolerated and this creates a very positive and safe learning environment. High calibre teaching staff ensures students reach their potential and that performance expectations are high. All students wear our school uniform with pride.

High standards of academic performance are achieved and an extensive variety of extra-curricular activities are offered to our 800 students. Included in over 20 sporting codes is a baseball academy, the only one in a NZ school. There is a creative and critical thinking programme for gifted students and all students have easy access to an astounding art collection, the largest of any school in New Zealand.

A maximum of 30 international students are accepted for enrolment each year and they all receive excellent pastoral care and academic support and monitoring from a highly qualified and experienced staff who are passionate about their students maximising their opportunities and experiences at our school and in New Zealand. Our ESOL Department operates a Reception Class which accepts students with little or no English so students do not need to go to a language school first. ESOL classes are included in the tuition fee.

One Tree Hill College operates a Homestay Programme run by a coordinator who offers loving and disciplined care. All students are met at the airport and given assistance to settle into their new environment at home and at school.

We welcome your enquiry to study at our great school.
