Senior School

Finding the Right Future

We have a philosophical commitment to offering each student a broad liberal curriculum in Years 9 and 10. All students study English, Geography, History, Mathematics and Science. Students are also required to study a Language (LOTE) in both Years 9 and 10, with the School currently teaching Mandarin Chinese, French, Bahasa Indonesia and Latin.

Within both years, elective subjects are offered such as Commerce, Information Technology, Music, Art, Drama, Visual Communication and Design (VCD) and ESL English.

The breadth of these curricular offerings is seen as the best preparation for the selection and study of subjects in the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) years. In Year 11 it is expected that most students will study seven subjects, with most students studying five in Year 12. Year 11 students may also study a Unit 3/4 sequence, subject to meeting specified academic requirements.

During Years 11 and 12, students maintain full participation in the sporting program and are encouraged to be involved in extra-curricular interests. In essence, the School believes that the student is best served through a well-rounded academic and co-curricular program that promotes a variety of learning opportunities, complemented by the commitment of the School’s staff and the student’s pastoral care connections to his Tutor, Tutor Group and Head of House.
