Northcross Intermediate School is one of Auckland's top schools, offering quality English courses (ESOL) for International Students. Students can improve their English while studying the New Zealand Year 7 & 8 School Curriculum. Our school is proud of its cultural diversity and celebrates student's success across all genres. Homestay accommodation is available through our school families.
At Northcross we understand that the more support we can offer our International Students and their caregivers the easier it will be for them to settle into school life. It’s for this reason that we offer FREE After School Support Classes. Tuesday’s and Thursdays from 3.15- 4.15 International Students are given the opportunity to attend a support class run Mrs Ethne de Bruin who has been a teacher at Northcross for over 10 years. Mrs de Bruin is a full-time relief teacher at Northcross and has been teaching our After School International Student Classes for nearly 8 years. Tuesday afternoon is an opportunity for the students to get help with homework, understand topics and themes being taught that week. Thursday afternoon we have English speaking Northcross students coming into the class to assist Mrs de Bruin with the student’s learning and offer general Peer Support. This year we also introduced a 30-minute support class for parents and caregivers. On Thursdays from 4.15-4.45 parents and caregivers have the opportunity to learn more about the New Zealand Education System, the running of the school and how they can support their child at home. It’s also an opportunity for parents to get to know one another and form friendships with other parents who may be here alone with their child while they study”. The classes start around week 3 and continue through until early December"
Northcross Intermediate School has been the signatory to The Code of Practice for International Students since 2002.
