Record scholarships for 2022 Long Bay College students

2021 was a tumultuous year, the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic meaning the Long Bay school community was once again challenged to adapt to unprecedented change. However, as in 2020 the College excelled. Long Bay College ranks amongst the top Schools in New Zealand for Academic Achievement, exceeding averages for national and decile ten high schools and outperforming many private schools. The College’s students again set record highs in University Entrance, Endorsement and Scholarship, the results stand out as a beacon of academic excellence regionally and nationally.

All NCEA students had to prepare for their exams through online learning. Teachers supported students in their studies through timetabled remote learning, extra tuition and virtual study workshops. Fundamental to supporting student success was the College’s proven and traditionally strong classroom practice and ability to innovate and adapt to change.

2021 saw record-high NZQA scholarships results for Long Bay College with more students and subjects being represented on the honours board than ever before. This includes the highest of high achievements; a Premier Scholarship award, given to the top twelve of all students in New Zealand, an honour achieved by the college’s 2021 DUX, Iain Sweatman. Iain achieved a scholarship in Earth and Space Science, and outstanding scholarships in Statistics, Physics, Geography, English, Chemistry, and Calculus. To achieve a single scholarship a student needs to be in the top 3% of scholarship entries for that subject. Iain’s achievements go above and beyond that achievement and place him second in New Zealand for the number of Outstanding

Scholarships gained. This is a significant achievement in the face of fierce competition from all over the country.

Iain will be attending Auckland University this year completing a bachelor of Advanced Science majoring in Maths. With endless opportunities on the horizon for Iain he is going to University to study what he enjoys most and to see where these opportunities take him.
