Northland is renowned for its relaxed lifestyle and is predominantly made up of rural areas with small high achieving schools and a friendly atmosphere. A lot of schools in Northland take advantage of the warm climate and accessibility to a variety of outdoor pursuits, encouraging a healthy and active lifestyle for growing up in this positive environment.

Larger schools in the more populated areas of Whangarei and Kerikeri provide extensive modern facilities and private education is also an option.

NorthTec is the region’s largest tertiary education provider, covering a multitude of subjects and offering over 100 courses. NorthTec is government owned and works closely with local and national employers providing practical, quality training at six campuses across the region.
