At Tauranga Boys’ College we offer a course in English that caters for the needs of our international students from foundation level to proficient speakers. Our junior ESOL classes for year 9 and 10 students focus primarily on building the language by providing intensive English grammar and vocabulary instruction.

The senior ESOL programme at Tauranga Boys’ College continues to support the development of English language skills, while also preparing students for NCEA English. The programme follows the New Zealand English Curriculum and students are able to gain University Entrance literacy in this course.
