Year 11 Programme

 For a quick video guide to selecting Year 11 courses click below.

 

Students won't be gaining Level 1 NCEA in Year 11.  There will be up to one internal NCEA assessment per semester course, giving students the opportunity to gain approximately 45 credits but not the 80 needed for Level 1 NCEA.  Some assessments maybe at Level 2 NCEA.  These internal assessments will expose students to the way different subject areas assess NCEA in preparation for Year 12 and the completion of Level 2 NCEA.

All students will work on the completion of Level 1 Literacy and Numeracy (10 credits for each) as these are needed for NCEA Level 2 and 3.  The course descriptions below state if Literacy or Numeracy credits are included in each semester course.

The content covered in each course will include the knowledge required to continue into Year 12 for that particular course.  In summary, Year 11 and 12 are dedicated to the completion of Level 2 NCEA.

Semester Courses

Year 11 students study 12 semester (half year) courses.  This equates to six year-long courses.  English and Mathematics are compulsory, but Science is also strongly recommended.  Students are required to select two English and two Mathematics semester courses (a year of each).  The remaining eight semester courses can be made up of:

  • selecting single courses from a subject area eg: 11BIOa (Biology-Human)

or

  • selecting two courses from a subject area eg: 11BIOa and 11BIOb.  This equates to a whole year of Biology.

A few semester two courses require you to complete semester one first, before doing semester two.

These semester two courses have an * at the end of their code:

In Year 9 students start the first year of their two year junior programme. Year 9 consists of two semesters (half year-long) with a combination of compulsory courses and option courses chosen by the students. 

In Year 9 students will take 12 semester (half-year) courses that include:

a) Compulsory Courses - 2 semesters of Health & PE, Mathematics, Science, and one Semester of English and Social Studies. (the reverse happens in Year 10, the second year of the junior programme).

b) Option Courses - Four semesters of option courses (note: students choose 5 option courses in Year 10, the second year of the junior programme).

Year 10 students study five compulsory courses (English, Mathematics, Health & Physical Education, Science and Social Sciences) and six semester (half year) options (see individual course details).  You can choose to do one semester course from a subject area eg: Drama - Part 1 or take two semester courses from a subject area, which is equivalent to a whole year course eg: Drama Part - 1 and Drama - Part 2.  Pathways for all course at all levels are summarised on the Course Planning Chart.

A few Year 10 semester two courses require you to complete semester one first, before doing semester two.

Students won't be gaining Level 1 NCEA in Year 11.  There will be up to one internal NCEA assessment per semester course, giving students the opportunity to gain approximately 45 credits but not the 80 needed for Level 1 NCEA.  Some assessments maybe at Level 2 NCEA.  These internal assessments will expose students to the way different subject areas assess NCEA in preparation for Year 12 and the completion of Level 2 NCEA.

Year 12 students study six year-long courses (see individual course details and Course Planning Chart).  There are no compulsory courses, however, English and Mathematics are strongly recommended.

Students have the option of studying five courses. In such cases, students will be placed in the Independent Learning Project (ILP001) course, in addition to their five courses, so that they can be mentored and have their progress monitored.

 

Year 13 students study five year-long courses (see individual course details and Course Planning Chart) and have an Independent Study (IST).  A sixth course can be selected in place of IST.  Students have the option of studying four courses.  In such cases, students will be placed in the Independent Learning Project (ILP001) course, in addition to their four courses, so that they can be mentored and have their progress monitored.

For students that are intending to gain University Entrance it is strongly recommended that they select at least four University Entrance approved courses.  Refer to individual course details to check if a course is a University Entrance approved subject

Year 13 (IST) is independent, unsupervised learning that can take place at school or at home.  Students are responsible for managing their work during this time.
