Whangaparaoa College




Welcome to Whangaparaoa College, located in one of the most beautiful areas of New Zealand. It boasts a coastline of golden beaches, a regional park and a world-class golf course. Whangaparaoa is Maori for Bay of Whales and these majestic animals can be seen moving around the peninsula at certain times of the year.

New Zealand is a safe and peaceful country with an excellent education system.

Established in 2005, our school has modern buildings and facilities and we offer a wide variety of schooling, social and outdoor activities.

Whangaparaoa College has a special common room for international students and a classroom for the teaching of English language support, as well as all the facilities of a large, modern well-equipped school. There is a very large gymnasium and an excellent performing arts centre. Dance, Drama and Music are all part of the life at the college and many international students participate in these activities.
The school is very spacious covering 19.5 hectares, with wide open spaces and large fields. It is close to the beach and classes will often walk to the beach for science or other lessons. Most learners walk to school from home or use the inexpensive school bus.

The college has developed a reputation for innovative and exciting educational opportunities. We welcome learners from around the world.
