At St Peter’s we offer two qualifications pathways. At the end of Year 11 students choose whether to continue with NCEA or undertake the two-year International Baccalaureate Diploma (IB). Subject choices vary according to which qualification is chosen. NCEA offers a wide variety of subjects which allows students to narrow their focus and specialise in particular areas, or to keep options open by choosing a wide variety of subjects. The IB encourages a broad, well-rounded education and offers choices across learning areas on that basis. For more information about these two qualification pathways follow the links provided below:
