New Zealand | Achievement in Boys’ Schools 2010–12
In 2012, 28 percent of boys leaving state and state-integrated schools came from 43 boys’ schools.

Analysis of New Zealand male school leaver qualifications from 2010 to 2012 show that boys’ schools have higher qualification achievements than co-educational schools. In 2012, boys’ schools had a median school proportion of 42 percent of their leavers attaining University Entrance, 83 percent with at least NCEA Level 2 or its equivalent, and 8 percent without a qualification.

In 2012, co-educational schools had a median school proportion of 23 for the percent of their male leavers attaining University Entrance, 69 percent with at least NCEA Level 2 or its equivalent, and 17 percent without a qualification. Some differences in student achievement between the two types of school can be expected, given their different socioeconomic profiles: 32 percent of the boys’ schools are decile 9 or 10 compared with 9 percent of the co-educational secondary schools, and only 5 percent are decile 1 or 2, compared with 20 percent of the co-educational secondary schools.
