More Information

Rosehill College is a school which has high expectations of students and achieves correspondingly high results. Our focus is on academic achievement across the very broad range of subjects we offer. We are interested primarily in student learning and in ensuring that the College provides an environment for personal excellence.

It is our view that every student who walks through our gates has the capacity to succeed.

Learning takes place well beyond the classroom as well. The College has an extensive and impressive range of programmes and activities designed to develop and extend cultural, sporting and leadership abilities and potential.

The key features of our success and our mission as a college are:

The Curriculum and Qualifications Offered

As a large and nationally recognized college we offer a comprehensive curriculum and qualifications well beyond the reach of most other New Zealand schools.
More details about the curriculum and qualifications offered are provided on our web page at

Special programmes have been developed for international students who require assistance with their English language skills. All students will be assessed before their programmes are finalised, to ensure that the selected English ESOL classes will meet the student’s needs. Guidance will also be provided to ensure that international students select subjects and qualifications which are appropriate to their abilities and skills and their future plans for study.

The Teaching Staff

Selection of staff is the most important task of the principal and the Board. The college attracts quality applicants for positions because of its national profile and because it provides and funds extensive professional development and training opportunities for teachers and support staff.

A Commitment to the Individual

All international students are placed in the care of our Director of International Students who is responsible for all aspects of their academic and personal welfare. The Director of International Students works closely with Heads of Houses, our International Student Co-ordinator, and other senior staff to ensure that students are cared for and their needs met.
International students are encouraged to play a full part in the college and as such will be placed in one of the six Houses at the college. Each House has a special character and students often develop special commitment to their house.

The location and Facilities

Rosehill College is situated in a residential suburb of Papakura, 30 minutes by car from downtown Auckland City, and 15 minutes from Auckland International Airport.

The College is well-resourced and modern. In the past four to five years a huge programme of development has occurred. This has meant that we now work in many new/refurbished buildings - including technology, music, drama, art, science labs, and e-Iearning rooms.

In Summary

The commitment of the College is to learning, and our central focus is on student achievement, supported by strong cultural, sporting and social programmes.

The College welcomes international students who wish to gain international quality qualifications, in an environment designed specifically to assist and guide them to achieve to their fullest potential.
