Welcome to He Tīwai Mātauranga Heaton Normal Intermediate School.

Thank you for your inquiry about your child studying and learning at our school. We thoroughly enjoy having the opportunity to include international students in our school community. We believe all our students benefit from learning and developing alongside students from a wide variety of cultures and backgrounds.

Our school is a co-educational, two-year school catering for about 550 students aged 11-13 years.  It is set in beautiful, spacious grounds in the heart of Merivale. Easy access to many of the key city attractions of Christchurch makes it a lovely, safe place to live. We have excellent facilities and outstanding staff who teach our international students and ensure they feel safe and happy in our school.

We have a long tradition of achieving excellent results in academic, sporting, and cultural areas regularly winning scholarships, as well as local, national, and international competitions.

Our International Student Coordinator is committed to our international students and families to ensure their pastoral care and academic success are well supported.

We look forward to receiving your application for a place in our school.
