SECONDARY SCHOOL (7-10)
When you are considering a secondary education for your student it’s important to think about all of your options. We have a large public school and a large Catholic school in town that could be a good fit for your student.
Because we already have two large schools in the area this has given us the opportunity to have a very specific vision for the culture that we are building in our Years 7-10 program.
Students who need to be loved & accepted
We are very proud of our inclusive culture on the school campus. We hope to provide an atmosphere where students can be loved and accepted at a time when they are feeling very vulnerable. If you have had the unfortunate experience of being bullied in school you will know that it is very hard to learn when someone is making fun of you for how you look or what you don’t own.
We have very experienced staff who are able to see issues as they arise and to work closely with the different types of personalities that you see in the classroom.
Students who are ready to thrive with extra work and extra responsibilities
Our classroom is quite different from the typical classroom that you would see in town. You will find our students have developed a natural curiosity and that they are free to ask questions and to follow where their passions take them.
You will see a very robust debate in the classroom when a teacher calls for opinions and points of view. This type of learning environment closely mirrors the entrepreneurial workforce that we are preparing our students for.
Students who are really interested in technology
Our students have every opportunity to pursue their interest in subjects relating to Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. In addition to our incredible facilities, we are always encouraging our students to express themselves using the technology with which they are most comfortable.
Teachers ensure students are engaged learners by developing exciting assessments. You will see lots of movies, animations, and even projects developed through Minecraft!
Subjects & Electives
Students study all of the same subjects that they would learn in other schools including Maths, English, Science, Technology, Music, Visual Art, History, Geography, PDHPE, French and Sport.
Students in Year 9 & 10 have access to a variety of electives both face to face on campus and through our sister school in Sydney via online learning.
