Celebrating Academic Excellence

Another year of strong academic results reflect the hard work and target setting of the College students and staff. Students have done St Andrew’s proud with a provisional record number of 205 NCEA Excellence endorsements across all three levels, 38 more than last year. Of those, 46 were Level 3 Excellence endorsements. It is not easy to gain an Excellence endorsement, with students required to achieve 50 or more Excellence credits, so congratulations to all students who attained this award.

Rector Christine Leighton says she is delighted to see St Andrew’s students striving to achieve Excellence grades. “These outstanding results are a testament to our students’ hard work, parent support and also dedication from our teachers.”
