Academic results

Congratulations to our Year 11 to 13 students of 2017 for their stellar NCEA results. We are thrilled to see so many of our girls achieving their personal best.  


Published results include those for students who did not complete a full year’s work and who were therefore not in a position to achieve their NCEA. NZQA has released data that enables us to compare the performance of Marsden students to that of students in Decile 8 to 10 schools, which gives a fair snapshot of our relative performance.


We are proud of the success of our students and the dedication of their teachers who consistently deliver such outstanding results.
