All Rounder George Varney, Proxime Alex Gasson and Dux Damien Bolliger after the 2019 Senior Prizegiving
At Marlborough Boys’ College we focus on boys aspiring to “be the best that they can be” in all facets of school life. Academically boys are encouraged to aspire for pass rates that reflect their academic ability. Academic achievement is valued. All students achieving overall excellence or merit passes in NCEA get academic badges. We are encouraged by the rising number of boys who have in recent years achieved merit and excellence grades. The Marlborough College Charitable Foundation supports students who are aspiring to achieve scholarships. The mana associated with being named Dux (top academic student in the school) is very evident in the positive acknowledgement given by fellow students at the senior prizegiving. The photo above highlights our 2019 top students.
Senior student course selection process for 2021 will open on the 27th of July 2020. Please find attached an overview of courses on offer for the 2021 school year.
Students Form teachers, subject teachers and Deans will start to discuss aspirations and pathways with each student in the lead up to selection time. Students will need to complete an internal process of sign up and approval, alongside the request of selection that Whanau and students complete through the parent portal.
This process will ensure that students make informed choices that best suit there aspirations, goals and capabilities.
More information around this process will be available closer to the selection process open date.
Further information around course content and learning requirements can be gained through contact with Heads of Faculty for each curriculum area or by students and Whanau attending a course overview evening at MBC on the 30th July from 4pm till 6pm.
