Proxime Accessit Joshua Webb, Dux Steven Simpson and All Round Endeavour winner James Hammond after the 2018 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 2018 top students.
The Junior Curriculum booklet outlines the courses available as well as the possibility of doing some Year 11 papers in Year 10.
