A nurturing school for students with health issues

It can be a worrying time when your child is forced to miss school due to illness or accident, however we at the Northern Health School can help.

We are one of three New Zealand health schools providing community, in-home and hospital based teaching to school aged students who are too unwell to attend their regular school.

Tailored Programmes

We pride ourselves on providing individualised programmes tailored to meet the health and education needs of our students.

Globally Unique

This integrated service is, we believe, unique in the world and allows our teachers to provide a seamless service to each student.

Close Relationships

We have a close relationship with each of the other two health schools which makes the service we offer a national one.



The learner is the reason and the focus of all we do.
Every learner receives an education, no matter what their illness, where they live, or what path they want to follow.
The learners’ voices and choices are central to everything.
High quality staff deliver consistency and cohesiveness across the school.

Vision and Mission Statement


Commitment to learning and the learner.
Compassion inherent in all that we do.
Achievement through setting and achieving learner-centered goals.
Respect for culture, diversity and each other.
Equity of opportunity for all learners.
