Our extension pathways ensure that our most capable students are challenged and extended sufficiently. Our pathways recognise individual talents and aim to be as inclusive as possible. This means students can be placed in one or multiple extension classes, depending on their ability in specific subject areas. Students are able to move between extension and core courses. Owing to the flexibility of NCEA, we are able to use assessments from different learning areas or different levels to construct truly unique extension courses that respond to student interests and needs.
In 2018, we achieved a 100% pass rate in every single Year 11 extension course, meaning all students gained 14 and over credits within a course, with the majority of the credits gained at Merit and Excellence levels.
Cambridge International Examinations
2019 marks the final year of CIE as an assessment pathway in our school. We have continued to commit to our boys following the CIE programme, and are fiercely proud of the results they have produced.
