Senior School

In striving for peak performance, achieving excellence in every endeavour remains the goal of our senior (Years 10-12) students. The Buckley Street campus provides the ideal adult learning environment for our motivated students and dedicated staff. They are partners in learning. The tuition, coaching, targeted feedback and moral support provided helps prepare future-ready students – graduates who have the knowledge, skills and mindfulness required to succeed beyond our gates.

Participation in a diverse range of vocational, sporting, community and cultural events, and interstate and international tours is strongly encouraged as it fosters personal growth, as well as a strong connection with and pride in the school. Developing effective, agile, principled leaders is another Senior campus priority.

The learning program is collaborative, stimulating and rigorous. It:

  • is underpinned by positive relationships
  • incorporates wellbeing education and leadership opportunities
  • is supported by the appropriate technology
  • is complemented by broad ranging co-curricular activities
  • includes pathway options to suit every learner.
