The aim of the senior school is to enable all students to learn successfully and reach their potential. Our Senior School team supports all learners to achieve the best possible outcomes for their future pathways. This learning is supported by a combination of developing strong personal relationships in a safe caring environment, excellent communication between staff, students, parents and caregivers and timely regular feedback to students and their families.
The Senior School curriculum (Years 10-12) offers a wide range of opportunities for students to develop the knowledge, skills and understandings needed to meet the challenges of 21century learning. These studies are in line with the Australian Curriculum.
Year 10 students are introduced to the SACE (South Australian Certificate of Education) by studying the PLP (Personal Learning Plan) in Year 10. This is a compulsory subject like English, Mathematics and Research Project which are studied in Year 11.
Through their SACE studies students are able to choose from a wide range of subjects (See Senior School Curriculum Guide). Most subjects are studied on campus at the school but Physics, Chemistry, and Specialist Mathematics in Year 12 are studied at UniSA (Mawson Lakes campus).
Many students at the school complete their SACE requirements with a VET(Vocational Education Training) component. Students are strongly encouraged to pursue a variety of post school pathways including university, TAFE, or VET.
Subject offerings available at each year level in the senior school are located in the Curriculum section of this website.
