Pleasing Academic Results for NCEA Students

Wednesday, 21 January 2015

With thanks to Mr Richard Stead 

The 2014 results in both NCEA and the International Baccalaureate Diploma qualifications were extremely good with a pleasing increase in the number of NCEA students gaining Excellence Endorsements across all three levels of this qualification. Overall, the majority of our students can be proud of their achievements with the vast majority gaining their respective NCEA Level Certificate.

91% of our NCEA students gained University Entrance. (This figure will increase once the results of our IB Diploma students are added. This will be reported on shortly.)

Of further note, we have a higher number of students who have gained results to be awarded Saint Kentigern Academic Colours and Honours than in previous years, testament to student effort and acclaim of these awards.
