Value for Money

NZ private schools are moving ahead of their British counterparts on the global league table for English-speaking education, according to new international research. NZ tops the table for maths and science in the Pisa education survey, published by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development. British private schools beat NZ in reading alone, while US private schools performed less well than NZ and Britain in all areas. NZ’s high quality private education is also significantly cheaper than that available in the UK or US, especially for international students. “New Zealand independent schools represent the best value on the planet,” says Lynda Reid, principal of St Cuthbert’s College in Auckland.
