Senior students sit school examinations in relevant subjects during September. These precede NCEA Level 1, Level 2, and Level 3 examinations. They form part of the internal assessment requirements for most NCEA subjects.
Years 9 and 10 have end-of-year (November) exams in their core subjects.
Where appropriate, from Years 7 to 10, other core and option subjects are tested in class, over one or two hours, at the same time of year.
All students from Years 7 – 10 are assessed against the NZ National Curriculum levels twice a year.
Parents, students and staff can monitor progress in Reading, Writing and Maths over these years.
