Senior School encompasses Years 10-12. Year 10 is overseen by the Director of Teaching and Years 11 & 12 by the Director of Curriculm and Home Group teachers support each home class.
Year 10 and 11 students study 7 subjects per semester, Year 11 students study six and undertake a minimum of 4 year-long subjects, plus the Research Project, completed either Year 11 or 12. A full outline of the curriculum is contained in the Curriculum Handbooks.
The Home Group teacher monitors the progress of each student in the home class, provides general school information and focusses on well-being. Senior School subject teachers are skilled in curriculum knowledge and pedagogy and maintain dialogue with Home Group teachers and parents on progress and well-being in their subject. Mid-term Stop-Light data communicates progress in each subject.
At Senior School we recognise the growing independence of our students. Private Study at Year 12 allows students to manage some of their study time during the day and, as many have part-time employment, to balance school and job commitments. Home Study is granted to Year 12 students by the Home Group teacher, in conjunction with parents, for two sessions per week in Terms 2-4, provided the Research Project is satisfactorily completed and the student’s Term 1 report indicates a passing grade in all subjects.
The SACE Stage 1 Personal Learning Plan is undertaken by Year 10 students. It allows them to explore career pathways, seek information on post-secondary education requirements, and select Years 11 and 12 subjects relevant to their chosen pathways.
Senior School students are expected to provide leadership and support to younger students.
We aim for departing Senior School students to be self-directed, knowledgeable learners, independent, mature adults and to possess the ethics and values for responsible citizenship.
