The Curriculum

We are justly proud of the academic success and achievement of the boys at every level.

Excellence is the aim for all at St Thomas of Canterbury College and the boys are encouraged to achieve their very best in everything they do.

Students excel in our small classes where teachers give them individual attention. Less able students are given specialist help and more able students are extended and stimulated.

On their arrival at the College, all students at whatever level, undergo a series of tests to assess their needs.

An emphasis on flexible time-tabling and a variety of courses allow students to take the subjects which suit them best. Some courses lead to further academic study, some are employment-related and others assist their personal development. They leave the college well equipped for their lives ahead.

In the senior levels NZQA results determine student advancement.
