|NEW ZEALAND'S EDUCATION
Academic excellence is a priority at Birkenhead College. We offer a full range of courses with senior students entering for NCEA. Our students score highly in external exams and our teachers actively encourage the students to achieve to the best of their ability. Many are awarded scholarships often going on to attend International Universities at post graduate level.
The school promotes strong sporting and cultural traditions. Our Sports Coordinator ensures a wide range of sport is available and our teams are coached and well –managed. Drama and Art are also incorporated into the students learning. A Director of Music organises access for students to top quality tuition for a wide range of musical instruments and for voice.
We offer safe homestay accommodation and our International Student Manager is available 24/7 in cases of emergency.
The unique character of Birkenhead is evident in the all – encompassing nature of the school. Students are encouraged and supported as individuals. A keen sense of community exists within the school, providing an important tool in developing students’ self-esteem, initiative, responsibility and creativity.
We look forward to being a part of your student’s success at Birkenhead College.
