About Us

Our Philosophy

Whether you require General English, IELTS or Cambridge exam preparation, an EAP course for university or other tertiary study….or maybe just some private tuition, we can deliver a course that takes you where you want to go!

Learning English can be challenging, and as a specialist language school, Seafield knows how to help students make rapid progress with their English.

Professional teachers, small classes and plenty of individual attention are certainly features of our school, but it’s more than that…

It’s our school’s welcoming atmosphere, the many international friendships made, and the caring and professional environment which sets Seafield apart. We are a school that students remember fondly and recommend to others.

We intentionally create a school environment where students feel accepted and supported. We believe that satisfied & happy students who challenge themselves to grow in every area, not just academically, will excel and succeed in life!

  • Auckland is Open!

    We are now accepting enrolments for 2016…

    With campuses in two great destinations, students have access to both the culturally-rich North Island at our Auckland campus, and the spectacular beauty of the South Island at our campus in Christchurch!

We appreciated the friendly and familiar atmosphere in the classroom. The location of the school in the city centre was perfect for us to explore Auckland. Altogether it was just the best place to study English for us! Thank you team Seafield for the amazing time we could spend with you!

In 1993 and 1995, I was a student at Seafield. The time at your school opened up uncountable possibilities for me. Having already had children’s book publications in German before I came to you, I now also write in English.

I’ve written articles for Writing Magazine and Self-Publishing Magazine, short stories for anthologies and AQUILA Children’s Magazine, won 1st prize in the writing for children category in this year’s Swanwick Writers’ Summer School competition, where I have also been a course leader (me, a non-native-speaker!).

High time to say thank you for the opportunities you and your school have opened up for me!

"In the 28 years that I have worked for Seafield I have seen thousands of students from all over the world expand their opportunities through study and travel.

When I see our students achieving their goals academically and socially, and forming international friendships that can last a lifetime, I am reminded of why I enjoy working at Seafield so much!

I am proud of the way we care for our students, and of our professional team.”
