Senior school

The Senior Village at both campuses provides senior students in Years 10, 11 and 12, with modern facilities that are similar to adult working environments.

YEAR 10 PREPARATION FOR SENIOR YEARS

A greater emphasis is placed on pathways, and developing skills towards a chosen vocation.

Students are encouraged to examine their individual pathways and to seek experiences in tertiary education, workplace or applied learning.

Year 10 is a time of preparation for Years 11 and 12 studies and is the beginning of a three-year Senior School program.

This means preparing for further study at university or TAFE, or focusing on vocational pathways and employment-based training.

Comprehensive course advice helps students to identify their strengths and goals and the pathways available to them.

In addition to the compulsory subjects of English and Maths, students choose from a wide range of units offering considerable flexibility. This enables them to build individual study programs and work towards their goals.

All Year 10 students have access to work education programs that allows exploration of future careers and encourages the development of vocational skills.

A special one-week ‘Headstart’ program also helps further prepare students for Year 11 and 12 studies. An accelerated access program allows capable students to undertake a VCE subject during Year 10.

YEAR 11 & 12 ASPIRATIONS FOR THE FUTURE

Our motivational approach to learning helps students through the challenges of senior years and develops autonomy, commitment and self-reliance.

During Years 11 and 12, we encourage students to believe in their own capabilities, set personal goals and achieve their best.

We create independent learners who can transition smoothly to tertiary education, further training or employment.

We offer an excellent selection of VCE subjects, and Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL) programs. A wide range of Vocational Education and Training (VET) subjects also provides further opportunity for senior students.

An extensive pathways program includes an annual Careers and Pathway Expo, career counselling, the Beacon Program and the Year 11 Aspirations program.

VCE induction, a special study skills camp for Year 12, holiday revision and exam preparation programs further assist our students in achieving their best.
