“Academy staff have a clear focus on meeting the needs of individual students. Students participate in the academy for variable amounts of time according to their requirements.  There are no fixed entry or exit points. Teachers provide students with individualised programmes for literacy and numeracy learning. Students have the opportunity to achieve National Certificates of Education (NCEA) at Levels 1, 2, or 3. They individually access a wide range of subjects through the school’s options. Students learn within an authentic context that encompasses their interests and aspirations.”

“There are high expectations for students’ behaviour, attendance, progress and achievement.  Students value the disciplined and structured environment, and close monitoring of their progress and behaviour. Positive, respectful relationships support students’ learning and development of social skills.  A strong team culture is evident. Students spoken to have a high regard for academy staff.”
