Curriculum Vision and Aims

Hastings Boys' High School recognises the importance of delivering a curriculum which is tailored to the needs of our community and our students.  The school embraces the New Zealand Curriculum as a framework for developing meaningful and effective programmes of learning for our students.  The pathways provided for assessment and achievements through NCEA are the basis for curriculum structures in the senior school.  These curricula are delivered through both traditional timetabled subject classes and integrated programmes.  This is further augmented through opportunities for extension employing the IGCSE qualifications.

The expectation of the school is that all students achieve to their best.  We see it as our duty to ensure their achievement.
