Vanguard NCEA Results Reflect Outstanding Start

Initial NCEA results illustrate the outstanding start Vanguard Military School students have made to the 2014 school year, achieving an average 89% success in term 1 assessments, Vanguard Chief Executive Nick Hyde said today.

Mr Hyde was commenting on Term 1 NCEA assessment results that showed Vanguard students across all demographics had significantly lifted their success rates from their previous schooling.

European and Other students were achieving 93% success, up from 58% success prior to attending Vanguard, while Pasifika students were now achieving 90% success, up from 62%, and Maori students achieving 85% success, up from 57%.

“We’re thrilled to see our students, particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds, already demonstrating the attitudinal and academic excellence we strive for at Vanguard”, Mr Hyde said.

“Vanguard takes pride in its learning environment which embraces the ethos and training methodology of the military and we believe this can really help and motivate students who may have struggled to connect with their previous education providers.”

“We have high expectations and these results are a fantastic start for our school and recognition of the work that both our staff and students are putting in”, said Mr Hyde.

Vanguard Military School opened in February 2014 and teaches the NZ Curriculum including NCEA Levels 1 and 2 to its Year 11 and 12 students. The school will expand in 2015 to teach NCEA Level 3 and University Entrance with Year 13 students.
