Curriculum Guide

Cambridge High School is committed to providing an education for its students which will equip them for life in the 21st century.

All students study English, Mathematics, Social Sciences, Physical Education, Arts and Technology at Year 9 and 10, as well as a second language.

Specialisation may take place at senior levels and students are encouraged to keep their options open for long as possible. Year 11 and 12 students at Cambridge High take five subjects and physical education.

Our curriculum provides students with learning towards successfully completing National Certificate (NCEA) qualifications. We offer accelerated programmes for students who excel in a given subject area. Most students will be mainstreamed, and there are remedial programmes for those who have difficulties coping with aspects of learning.

Cambridge High School offers a full range of courses, preparing students for University and tertiary education and training. Correspondence School courses are available to extend subject choice for some students.
