Vauxhall School welcomes international students and the cultural diversity they bring to our school on Auckland's North Shore. We are a signatory to the code of practice for the pastoral care of international students.

Vauxhall School has agreed to observe and be bound by the Code of Practice for the Pastoral Care of International Students. Copies of the Code are available from the NZQA website at www.nzqa.govt.nz.

We incorporate our international students into our mainstream classes and all parts of school life, in order to provide an authentic immersion into our School.

Our fees are in line with average Auckland primary international student school fees. We charge NZ$300 per week or NZ$3250 per term or NZ$13,000 per annum (gst included), plus a non-refundable administration fee of $500 per term to a maximum of $1500 per year.

An additional $300 per week may be charged for one on one teacher aide assistance for international students who require English language support. Please discuss this with us prior to enrolment if you believe your child may need this support.

An activity fee of $80 per ten week term is also charged to cover costs such as art supplies, stationary, school trips, shows and visiting experts we bring into the school. The school year is broken into four terms a year in New Zealand.

Fees must be paid before the student's place can be secured at the school.

Once the full fees are paid the school will issue a letter which will assist with the application of a student visa through New Zealand Immigration.

All International Students must have a current Visitor Visa for enrolments of up to 3 months, or a Student Visa for enroments of over 3 months. Children must live with at least one of their legal parents and must provide evidence of medical and travel insurance.
