Our students achieve excellent results in National Certificate of Educational Achievement (NCEA). They regularly win scholarships, as well as local, regional, national and international competitions. Our staff have high standards for themselves and high expectations of the students in their care.
At Burnside High School, we place an emphasis on individuals, and on achievement.
Our aim is to have each student leave the school with qualifications that will enable them to enter the world of work and/or tertiary study successfully. All students are expected to develop career plans linked to their studies and qualifications.
