Academic Results

Christ’s College follows the national curriculum (NCEA) and our students consistently out-perform 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 2017 results is shown below.

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

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