International Introduction

Milford School welcomes international students. We are recognised nationwide and internationally for both our academic excellence and appreciation of cultural diversity of our students. We value the contribution students and families from different countries bring to our school community.

Milford School has the atmosphere of an International School as many of our students’ families have migrated to New Zealand in the last decade. Apart from those who are residents of New Zealand, we have a number of International Fee Paying students.

In order for us to give the very best experience to our International students, we have a well resourced ESOL Department with the staff and resources necessary to support these students.

Our Director of International Students is Mrs Gordana Stanojevic. Gordana is very experienced, having taught English as a Second Language for more than 30 years. She has lived in New Zealand for  twenty six years, originally coming from Serbia. The ESOL staff liaise closely with the classroom teachers to ensure that pupils are settled and fully involved with the school curriculum.

Milford School International Students Programme offers:

  • Small group tuition

  • Classroom support

  • Reading support

  • Friendly and safe environment

  • Individual learning programmes when required
