For International Students


  • Peace Experiment accepts International students from Age 11 - 18

  • Parents must be willing to sign the Tuition Agreement and abide by the School’s rules as they apply to all students, including International Students

  • Students will only be accepted if there is sufficient space available in the school

  • All applications will be approved by the Principal, and if accepted will receive a letter of acceptance and invoice for the school fees.  An invoice will then be available with a Offer of Placement

  • Students who are not accepted will receive a letter from the Principal


  • To be eligible for a refund of the International Fee, an application must be made in writing to the Board of Trustees by the parent or legal guardian of the student stating clearly the reason for withdrawal of the student and received 10 weeks prior to the date of leaving.

  • If the withdrawal is made prior to the student commencing school, a full refund shall be made, less $386 application fee.

  • There will be no refund if a request to withdraw is made

  • after the student has reached the mid point of his/her contract except in exceptional circumstances, e.g. a Breach of the Fair Trading Act or Consumer’s Guarantee Act.

  • After two weeks of the start of a term

  • In determining any refund, the Board of Trustees will take into consideration the special circumstances of the withdrawing student and –

  • – The costs to the school in providing the tuition

  • - Costs incurred in employing staff and providing facilities

  • - Payments made to the New Zealand Government.

  • - Any other costs already incurred by the school.

  • No refund will be made to a student who –

  • Transfers to another school or educational institution

  • Is asked to leave because of misbehaviour, poor attendance or violation of the contract with the school, or breaks New Zealand Law

  • Becomes a permanent resident after the 1st of March (in any year) if enrolled in the school prior to the 1st of March.


International students who wish to withdraw from Peace Experiment must:

  1. Provide written approval from their parents

  2. Notify the Principal and complete the school leaving process


The Board guarantees a refund of unspent International School Fees, in the unlikely event of the school not being able to deliver its normal programme.  The guarantee lasts until the tuition has been provided.  

This policy is in keeping with the Code of Practice for the Pastoral care of International Students.


In most cases a discussion with the staff or Steven, the principal (02108134483) will sort out problems.  This includes problems with learning, friends and other students.  However some problems might need more support, or an external agency.
