Years 7 – 9
In Years 7 to 9 we seek to inspire, engage and challenge our students to embrace a love of learning each day with a commitment to working to meet the needs of the adolescent learner by using:
- a relevant, meaningful and rich curriculum
- Specialist teachers – teaching with a passion in their chosen fields
- Outstanding student welfare – we are renowned for our friendly, supportive environment and individualised care
- World-class, age-appropriate pedagogy – including using the latest interactive technologies supported by a campus-wide wireless network
Years 10 – 12 – Maximising Options for Life
During the Senior Phase of Learning we build upon the knowledge, understandings and skills that are cohesively and sequentially developed in the preceding years of each young person’s academic journey.
Year 10 is identified as a time of transition and consolidation and strong connections are made with prior and future learning. As such, we further develop and integrate the total education process at school, at home and in the community. The student remains the focal point in all that we do and our aim is to provide each student with many options to meet their individual education goals.
Our curriculum is designed with a strong academic focus to meet the needs of students considering further studies post Year 12. We also recognise the need to provide suitable pathways for all students throughout the Senior Phase of Learning. Opportunities exist for students to be involved in School Based Traineeships and Apprenticeships while support is ongoing for those who wish to work toward an Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank (ATAR). It is acknowledged that regardless of the pathway taken, all students have an obligation to uphold the specific academic demands that best prepare them for life beyond school.
