NCEA & learning pathways

Academic success is really important for everyone.

Many students are currently achieving very well. However, we are constantly seeking to improve results using a range of strategies.

We believe:

  • No student should leave school without at least a Level 1 National Certificate.
  • Every effort should be made to get all students to commit to completing Level 2. This provides a minimum skill base for life long learning and employment.  For some students this will require a full three years in the senior school.
  • At least half of students should complete Level 3 and gain their University Entrance. 

We expect our students to strive to do their very best, taking full advantage of the learning opportunities provided, both in and beyond the classroom.

In the senior school we talk about our ‘Ladder of Success’, shown below.

This table breaks our ‘Ladder of Success’ into three pathways. The shading represents achievement targets for Year 11, Year 12 and Year 13 as you climb the ladder.
