Christchurch's independent schools have again done well in the latest round of National Certificate of Educational Achievement (NCEA).

Rangi Ruru Girls' School and St Andrew's College were among the schools with the highest pass rates, school-by-school statistics released by the New Zealand Qualifications Authority yesterday show.

Ninety four per cent of Year 13 students at Rangi achieved Level 3 NCEA, slightly up on last year's results, when 92% of girls achieved Level 3. The school also achieved a 100% pass rate among Year 11 students at Level 1.

Christchurch Girls' High School was one of the highest-achieving state schools, with 89% of Year 13 students passing Level 3.

The achievements of Rangi and Girls' High mirror national statistics released last week, which showed girls again outperformed boys. This year, for the first time, the statistics show the percentage of students who achieved merit or excellence at each NCEA level.
