Studying at NZIS goes far beyond the classroom. Our students partake in outdoor recreation as part of their orientation and regularly compete in regional and national sporting competitions. NZIS staff are committed to providing high quality unforgettable experiences both inside and outside of the classroom that students will carry through to careers in the Sport, Fitness and Recreation industry.

Sporting Academies

Our NZIS high performing sporting academies for Rugby, Rugby League and High Performance are second to none in providing students with expert training and coaching strategy.  With a former Olympian and several National Representatives on staff, Academy students have access to top players and coaches in their respective sporting areas.
