Christ’s College follows the national qualifications framework (NCEA) and our students consistently outperform boys from other decile 8–10 schools, with results well above national averages. A high proportion of boys gain Merit or Excellence endorsements. An overview of 2020 results is shown below.

To further extend and challenge boys beyond Level 3 NCEA, many students also choose to sit NZ Scholarship examinations. Results are always impressive.

Every year, several boys are also awarded prestigious university scholarships. More than 90% of graduating students pursue tertiary education, either in New Zealand or overseas.
