School Performance

The Education Review Office (ERO) visits schools every 3 to 5 years and then writes a full report on the level of teaching and learning they observe. Our last ERO visit was in 2013.  

They commented that:
 • A tradition of high expectations for achievement, participation, behaviour and belonging is strongly supported by students, teachers, leaders, trustees and the community.

  • The school’s curriculum is matched to the aspirations of students and their families. It provides a broad range of choices and opportunities that suitably support girls’ learning and opens up pathways for them beyond school. Options for senior students are well considered and students are assisted with high quality advice and guidance to make good decisions.

  ERO is likely to carry out the next review in four-to-five years.
   In commenting on the achievement of our students, it was observed that:

  High levels of student achievement continue to be a feature of the school. 

 Growth in the number of students achieving merit or excellence endorsements at NCEA Levels 1 and 2 is evident in the 2011 and 2012 results.

School personnel identify relevant annual goals to improve aspects of NCEA achievement, with improving the rate of excellence endorsements in Level 3 NCEA being this year’s target. 

 Achievement of Māori and Pacific students is comparable with that of other students.
