A commitment to excellence

The Hobsonville Point Secondary School curriculum is guided by the New Zealand Curriculum to create learning programmes that are relevant to your child’s needs. Year 9 learning programmes incorporate the full range of NZ Curriculum secondary learning areas (shown in diagram). Our curriculum is underpinned by our values of Excellence, Connectedness, Collaboration, Inquiry and Innovation.

Our curriculum model is made up of three connected elements: Specialised Learning, Learning Projects and Learning Hubs (described on the following pages). This model offers each student engaging learning opportunities to achieve academic success. It provides a range of opportunities for authentic demonstration of learning, development of deep thinking and inquiry skills and tools for learning success.

At Hobsonville Point Secondary School students select pathways that best match their learning needs. All learning pathways will prepare and provide opportunities for students to gain a full range of NCEA qualifications leading to University entrance, apprenticeship, entrepreneurship and other employment. NCEA (National Certificate of Education Achievement) is New Zealand’s national and internationally recognised qualification system for senior secondary students, awarded at three levels; 1, 2 and 3. NCEA has a core requirement for Literacy and Numeracy and future-focused literacies which are emphasised across our curriculum.
