In Year 11 we do not complete Level 1 NCEA. Instead we provide a semesterised programme that includes some internal NCEA standards and non-NCEA topics. Year 11 students are not enrolled in NCEA external exams, instead they complete the year in late November. All students are expected to complete Level 1 Literacy and Numeracy in Year 11. For more details please click the link below.
Year 11 students can obtain a Year 11 Diploma. Click here for further details Year 11 Diploma
In Year 12 and 13 students are able to gain NCEA Level 2, 3 and University Entrance. NCEA is run by the New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA). Find out more about the qualification on their website.
