The college curriculum is structured in such a way that every student is able to follow courses that enable them to achieve academic success. In the senior school this means the provision not only of a traditional academic programme but also the provision of a range of courses which are skills and/or vocationally based. Furthermore, the curriculum structure is designed to allow students to pursue areas of strength, mixing traditional and non-traditional subjects into their individual programmes. Newlands College offers an extensive, balanced and challenging academic programme to all students. Our aim is to provide a comprehensive education so that students leaving Newlands College are able to be lifelong learners who are well prepared to take their place in New Zealand society.
