New Horizon College is located in Napier, a beautiful seaside city with a warm Mediterranean-style climate.  The school is in the centre of the city, close to cafés and tourist attractions. Napier's major tourist attraction is the Art Deco city itself, which people from all over the world come to see, as the architecture is strikingly different from any other city.  Throughout the year there are many opportunities for outdoor activities, with access to beaches, native forests and mountains.  The area surrounding Napier, Hawke’s Bay, is home to many award-winning wineries.
Our teaching is based on modern communicative methods of learning English and our qualified and experienced teachers encourage all the students to be actively involved in the class activities.

Our teachers take a keen interest in all students and provide a stimulating learning experience.  Students who enjoy interacting with their teacher and other students in a warm, friendly class atmosphere will like learning English at New Horizon.

New Horizon is a Category 1 school, which means that students can work for up to 20 hours per week as long as they enrol in a course of at least 14 weeks.

Our courses feature:

  • the 40+ English & Activities course, for older students who want a serious language course, but also time to relax and go on excursions with fellows of their age group.
  • Cambridge FCE, CAE and IELTS exam preparation: ideal for those wanting to use English for work, study, or professional purposes.
  • a regular activity programme to help our students make the most of their Napier experience.  Students can try kayaking, bush walking, wine tasting, beach volleyball, farm and museum visits, and much more.
  • Our student lounge is the hub of school social life, where we hold ceremonies for graduating students, birthday celebrations and international lunches.  Outside class time students can relax there and chat with their classmates to practise their English or play table tennis or billiards.
  • Our self-study centre is open every day after school, and students can book mini-lessons with a teacher to get personal assistance with language issues.

For accommodation we offer homestay placement.  Staying with one of our carefully chosen homestays will give plenty of conversation opportunities.  Students will have two meals a day provided on school days. Lunch will be provided by the homestays on weekends and public holidays. Students will have a room of their own and will be able to join in normal family life and activities with the homestay.
