Edgecumbe College continues to provide students with their learning needs to enable them to make well informed decisions in life beyond

We do our utmost to offer as many opportunities as possible to our students and we are always looking for new ways to create new
programmes that will cater for all needs.

Vocational Pathway Programmes are in progress for our students, run by Edgecumbe College. Students will gain the knowledge and practical
experience in trades that will be their future; use the knowledge and practical experience they gain from the programmes to support the
local and wider community in employment situations, and gain access to Tertiary Institutions to pursue further experience. Horticulture/
Agriculture Sciences, Technology Building and Constructions, Engineering, Food and Hospitality are just a few of the vocational pathways that
are available to our students at Edgecumbe College.

NCEA Student Achievement at Edgecumbe College has shown a ‘marked’ improvement at all levels. In 2014 we maintained an 83.3% pass
rate at level 1 and 3, and increased from 95.4% to 100% pass rate at level 2. The time, effort, commitment and dedication from staff, students,
whanau and the community is rewarded by this achievement.

Positive Behaviour for Learning - School Wide (PB4LSW) is alive and well at Edgecumbe College! Our core focus is WIRED (Whanaungatanga,
Integrity, Respect and Responsibility, (Personal) Excellence and Determination). Edgecumbe College has the fundamental purpose of teaching,
encouraging and rewarding desired behaviours, with the expectation that these behaviours will become habitual for students. In so doing, we
strive to improve student learning, student citizenship, attendance, motivation, self-belief and achievement.

Edgecumbe College Athletic Academy (ECAA) is relatively new to Edgecumbe College, but very well received by students. ECAA participants
has already achieved so much success at competition level, nationally and internationally. If students are willing to commit to an athletic sport
event, our highly dedicated (ECAA) coaching team will support them in achieving their sporting goals and aspirations. Participating in sports is
an integral part of student learning.
