Welcome to the College!

Welcome to all our International Students!

At Sacred Heart Girls’ College, Hamilton, we offer an exceptional education for young women in a supportive and caring environment.

We take International Students, years 9 – 13, at any level of English language. Once we test them we can assess how much English Language tuition they need before deciding with them on a suitable course for them to follow. Our ESOL (English to Speakers of Other Languages) department offers courses for beginner to advanced levels and is very successful.

International Welcome

International Students meet regularly with the Director to track their progress and discuss future pathways, either in New Zealand or in an other country.

With plenty of sport, cultural activities, service and leadership opportunities, we encourage our International students to achieve academically and to develop a sense of involvement and participation in the College and New Zealand’s way of life.

With small numbers and excellent staff, our International students enjoy a high rate of success in continuing on to, and succeeding at, tertiary level.

If you want to know more, please do not hesitate to contact the Director, Julie Radice, at international@shgcham.school.nz.

If you would like to apply for a place, there are three steps:

  1. Watch the video, look at the website, then read our policies and procedures, and understand them before you sign them.
  2. Fill out an application form and fees contract, and email them to international@shgcham.school.nz
  3. Once your daughter has been accepted, you will receive an invoice and acceptance letter. Then, once payment has been received, you will receive paperwork for a visa application.

We look forward to hearing from you.
