Thames High School

Thames is a thriving, semi-rural town of about 7000 people. It is situated at the base of The Coromandel and is just over one hour's drive from Auckland, New Zealand's largest city, (with over one million citizens.)

About

We offer a full range of subjects at all levels. YR11 and YR12 students must take six subjects, but most YR13 students take only five, and use their free time to study. International students will be assessed when they arrive, and their placement will depend on their academic ability and level of English. However we do our best to place students in the subjects they choose.
