Our international students add significant value to the social fabric of our College community by bringing different cultures and values into our everyday College life. Currently we have students from Japan, South Korea, Thailand, China, New Caledonia, and Futuna.

We offer international students a comprehensive and encompassing education, placing an importance on the development of the qualities and values to be a good son, friend, teammate, colleague, partner or husband.


International students are accommodated in the boarding hostel on site where all boarders live. Homestay accommodation is arranged for students on weekends and for school holidays as required, enabling International students to mix with New Zealand families.

The opportunity of staying in a hostel in a totally English-speaking environment results in an exponential improvement in the student’s own English language development.

"Lindisfarne has given me the opportunity to do what I love doing with a whole new group of friends. I am grateful to be a full boarder which has made me more mature and independent. Lindisfarne has plenty of things to offer to help you become a respectful and successful man of the future with great values"
