Year 11

A Significant Start

Year 11 at St Peter's College is an important year for our students as they embark on their journey towards the National Certificate of Educational Achievement (NCEA). This significant milestone encourages students to foster independent thinking and assume greater responsibility for their academic and spiritual growth.

Academically, Year 11 students are introduced to a more demanding curriculum, one that sets the foundation for their NCEA qualifications. With a strong focus on core subjects such as English, Religious Education, Mathematics, and Science, as well as their chosen elective subjects, students are equipped with the necessary tools to excel in their areas of interest.

During this critical phase, our students are encouraged to take ownership of their learning experience. They are empowered to work both individually and collaboratively, honing their skills and expanding their knowledge through independent study and group projects. By embracing this increased level of responsibility, students develop invaluable skills that will serve them well throughout their academic and professional lives.

To meet the assessment requirements of NCEA, Year 11 students at St Peter's College engage in a variety of evaluation methods. These include submitting assignments, undertaking tests and exams, and completing practical assessments. Through these diverse assessment modes, students demonstrate their understanding, critical thinking abilities, and application of knowledge across various disciplines.


Building A Sense Of Responsibility

At St Peter's College, we understand the importance of nurturing not only the academic growth but also the spiritual well-being of our students. Year 11 serves as an opportune time for students to deepen their spiritual connection and develop a greater sense of self-awareness. Our supportive environment and dedicated staff foster an atmosphere where students can explore their faith, ask thought-provoking questions, and embark on a journey of self-discovery.

Year 11 at St Peter's College is a year of immense growth and preparation. Our students are inspired to embrace challenges, nurture their intellectual curiosity, and cultivate the essential skills needed to achieve success in their NCEA qualifications. We believe that by laying a strong foundation in Year 11, our students will flourish academically, spiritually, and beyond, paving the way for a bright and promising future.
