Senior School

Students in Years 10, 11 and 12 are offered an extensive academic programme, a stimulating learning environment and leadership opportunities to prepare them for the future. The curriculum is distinctive in its breadth and academic rigour with modules and courses designed to stimulate the student’s intellectual development. It also prepares them for progress to the next level after Graduation, be it tertiary education, vocational education and training or employment.

Selecting Courses/Modules

When students are choosing their modules/courses it is important they consider the following points:

  • Academic Ability – in order to achieve success in many Years 11 and 12 Courses, students need to have demonstrated a high degree of academic ability and achievement in Year 10 Modules. Without this background, students invariably have difficulty with the Year 11 content. It is essential to take careful note of Year 10 entry requirements
  • Interests – the range of choices available in courses aims to give students the opportunity to pursue their particular interests, at whatever level they are able to perform.
  • Future Intentions – students, whether planning to seek early employment, employment after Secondary Graduation or to continue with further studies (TAFE, tertiary or other) should choose courses which will maximise their options for the future.
