Why Bream Bay College?

Bream Bay College welcomes students from all over the world.  Our International Student Programme is specially set up to mentor, educate and care for our overseas students.  We are very well placed to offer overseas students a unique and varied learning experience. 


Homestay accommodation is arranged and the family will provide a single room with a bed and study space.  You will get 3 meals a day, become part of a New Zealand family and be immersed in our culture. Our host families are carefully selected and are police vetted.

Our Co-Curricular Programme

There is a very wide range of co-curricular activities available ranging from sailing, surf life-saving, surfing, kapahaka, sport through to snow-skiing. There are regular curriculum trips to Fiji and an exchange visit to Japan every 2nd year. On our doorstep we have wonderful beaches.


To get the most out of your stay at Bream Bay College you will need at least basic English and a strong desire to learn our curriculum and adapt to a new culture. Students will need a NZ student’s visa and a student permit.


All international students will become part of our house system which fosters the idea of Whanau (an extended family or community of related families who live together in the same area). Activities in Whanau include lunch sports, academic coaching, lunch time sport events, Haka competition, Mathex and Quiz days.

Our Staff

It is the philosophy of Bream Bay College to provide a broad and balanced curriculum, with increasing degrees of specialisation as our students move through the school.  To maintain a balanced curriculum we provide high quality professional development for all staff to support their curriculum delivery.

Speaking English

All international students must have a basic level of English before coming to Bream Bay College. Students who are not native English speakers take special English classes. Your English ability will be assessed when you start school and you will have 2 hours of conversational English in a one on one situation, per week.
