Gateway Academy

The purpose of a Gateway Academy is to:

  • encourage students to stay engaged in learning by providing a motivating and disciplined programme;
  • help students to gain improved qualifications and help them prepare to move successfully into the workforce or further education and training.

International Students

Te Kuiti High School has a tradition of hosting and providing educational experiences for international students.

In order to maintain a high level of personal support and to ensure an "authentic" New Zealand experience, we limit the number of international students attending our school at any one time.

The school is a signatory to the ‘Code of Practice for the Pastoral Care of International Students’ which provides a framework for service delivery by educational providers to international students in New Zealand.

The code applies to pastoral care and provision of information only and not to academic standards.

On arrival at the school diagnostic assessments are completed to ensure suitable class placement.

Students are guided on subject and option choices based on their previous academic record and course requirements for any future tertiary education and participate in an orientation process to ensure a smooth transition into a New Zealand educational setting.

Te Kuiti High School welcomes applications from International Students who wish to experience a rural lifestyle.

Applications should be posted to: The Principal, Te Kuiti High School, P.O.Box 264, Te Kuiti 3910, New Zealand.

International Contacts

We welcome overseas students regularly, through schemes such as AFS and Rotary International, and our students in turn travel overseas with these organisations.

We have hosted numerous short-stay groups from Japan and Thailand, and opportunities arise from time to time for groups of our students to travel abroad.
