Cambridge International Examinations
As the second school in New Zealand to adopt the Cambridge International programme in 2002,
Pinehurst has a long and successful association with the University of Cambridge (CIE) and a deep understanding of how to deliver this progressive curriculum.
The University of Cambridge International Examinations system brings out the best in students and develops successful learners through a skill-based approach to teaching and accessing. The curriculum doesn't not simply demand recalled knowledge but places emphasis on the acquisition of critical thinking and problem solving.
