Dean's Message

Kia ora Year 11s!

2020 is a big year for you with many challenges. My job as your Dean, alongside your Tutor Teacher, is to ensure you are making the most of your time here at Wellington College. 

Most Year 11 students will be starting NCEA Level 1.  Please check the relevant subjects above to find out when internal assessments are due to be submitted.

NCEA External Examinations info:
If you are feeling unwell, or you have an accident on or before the day of an exam, download the derived grade form below and get a doctor to fill in section B. Make sure you ring Mr Savage asap. For all other issues, such as traumatic events, ring Mr Savage immediately.

Nga Mihi,
Miss Jenna Vreeburg


Later this year we will likely hold a presentation that is designed to help parents understand how NCEA, our national secondary school qualification, works. This session is for parents who are encountering NCEA for the first time - mostly Year 11 students. Obviously, the parents of the Year 10 accelerated classes fall into this category.  

Feel free to email our Curriculum DP, Andrew Savage, if you have any other questions:


  • Keep updated with the latest in discussion topics during Tutor Time and Pastoral Care Time (PCT)

Appeal Process


Students have the right to appeal any assessment-related decisions, including breaches of the rules, missed and late assessments, as well as grades awarded for assessments. Appeals are to be made within five school days from the time of the event, or once assessed work is returned and gone over by the teacher. For all appeals, an ‘Appeal Application Form 2017’ is to be completed by the student and handed to the appropriate HOD to process. Mr Thorp may be involved in the decision if needed. The decision made on the Appeal by the HOD/Mr Thorp will be final.
