Queenstown is set on the shores of Lake Wakatipu in the Lakes District of the South Island. The town is New Zealand’s premier tourist resort and is a popular destination year-round.

The famous Remarkables mountain range provides a stunning backdrop and is the setting for great summer walking and hiking (December – March) and exciting snow sports and mountaineering in winter (June – September). There are four ski areas within an hour's drive of Queenstown and the area is hugely popular with snow sports enthusiasts.

In summer, temperatures reach an average of 21°C – 23°C, great for outdoor sports and walking. A variety of exhilarating activities has also earned Queenstown the enviable crown of 'adventure capital of the world’ – with activities like bungy jumping, skydiving, jet boating and mountain biking proving extremely popular with visitors.

The lure of Queenstown as the most beautiful location in New Zealand is a great endowment for the school. It attracts excellent, multi-talented and motivated teachers who work in synergy to become one of the nation's strongest staff teams. Queenstown's incredible attractions also contribute to our diverse, multicultural student mix.
