Welcome to Aotea College and the Aotea College International Website

Aotea College has a well established tradition of welcoming students from around the world to share the unique culture and learning experience we have to offer.

Aotea College is located in Porirua City about 25 minutes north of Wellington City.

We are a state, coeducational, secondary school catering for students from Years 9 - 13 (13 to 18) years of age.

Aotea College offers international students a wide range of academic opportunities with links through to the universities, polytechnics and other tertiary providers in our region and elsewhere in New Zealand.

We encourage international students to engage in the wide range of sporting and cultural activities provided by the school. Our coastal location provides easy access to further recreational activities.
