Subject Options

Subject Options

In the Junior High School, we offer a wide range of subjects, allowing students the freedom to expand on their interests while continuing to strengthen skills in numeracy and literacy. Students work alongside exceptional teachers who mentor them to reach their full potential across all subjects and excel in their areas of strength. All students also have access to the latest digital technology and learn in state-of-the-art learning spaces. 

Our curriculum has been specifically designed to meet the needs and interests of students. The core subjects are Arts, (Dance, Drama, Music and Visual), English, Social Studies, Technology (Food, Fabric and Materials), Mathematics, Health and Physical Education, Science and Religious Studies. Students also have great opportunities for language learning, with 7 language options including Latin, Japanese, Mandarin, French, German, Spanish and Te Reo.


In the Junior High School students will explore new territories online, learn to think critically about new technologies and develop digital literacy that will prepare them for the future. Girls in Years 7-8 use their own iPads with applications that enhance their learning and from Year 9 students will learn to work independently from their own laptops.

In Junior High School, all students will have access to our Creative Industries faculty, established in recognition of the benefits of creative thinking across all subject areas. This faculty brings together The Imagination Station (editing suites, 3D printer and laser cutter), food technology, design and visual communication, digital technology, media studies, digital media design and material design technologies.

Learning from a dedicated team

Learning from a dedicated team

From Year 7, students in the Junior High School are taught by specialist teachers for all subjects. This means students learn from teachers who are experts in their chosen field and passionate about their individual subjects.
A specialist Maths tutor is also available for all students to ensure students grasp the fundamental basics of mathematics, setting them up for success in their senior years and beyond.
The Junior High School has small class sizes with low teacher-to-student ratios allowing us to offer a much more personalised approach to learning.

Future Pathway

Future Pathway

Our dual educational pathway gives senior girls the choice to study New Zealand’s National Certificate of Educational Achievement (NCEA) or the International Baccalaureate Diploma (IB). Both of these pathways have a history of high performance and allow students to apply for the world’s top universities. 


To help get ready for the move to Senior School, we work closely with all Year 10 students to help them choose the best qualification for their future study and career. Our academic pathways include enrichment and acceleration programmes for identified students with multi levelling offered in Years 9 and 10 enabling students to participate in NCEA examinations.
