NCEA (National Certificate of Educational Achievement) Level 1-3 are certificates that most students will work towards at Lynfield College. However, it is possible to gain other certificates that are registered on the New Zealand Qualifications Framework (NZQF). NZ Scholarship is also offered in some subjects. This is a separate, stand-alone qualification to extend high achievers.
NCEA Certificates enable students to demonstrate a wide range of skills linked to the New Zealand Curriculum. Lynfield College takes advantage of the flexibility of NCEA to offer a range of courses across a variety of subject areas. This allows our students to select courses that meet their learning needs, study at the appropriate level and follow their career pathway.
Lynfield College encourages students to strive for excellence at all levels and contexts and promotes teaching and learning strategies that motivate students to do their best. Yearly statistics published by NZQA, show that our students achieve at a level that is consistently above the national average for similar schools.
Lynfield College has a system for ensuring that assessment is fair, valid and consistent. This means:
