Our programs for students in years 10 to 12 are designed to support their successful transition into the world beyond our school gates.
Within a strong academic and highly-supportive emotional framework, our teachers challenge students to work outside their comfort zone, developing in them the courage and confidence to master the challenges of further study, work and life. We value critical and independent thinking and strive to build self-confidence in all of our students, which is crucial to the wellbeing of young people moving from adolescence into early adulthood.
Throughout the Senior School the responsibility for the personal welfare of each student lies with their Mentor. Mentors share a strong connection with their students and the matters that may affect their progress and wellbeing. They spend time with students every day, giving them a deeper understanding of individual interests, personal circumstances, strengths, weaknesses and academic history
Senior School students are encouraged to continue their participation in the diverse range of cocurricular offerings available to them. Especially in the final years of their secondary education it is vitally important that young people maintain a healthy work-life balance.
In addition to the VCE, we offer the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) – the tertiary entrance qualification most respected and widely recognised by the world’s leading universities. Almost 35 years ago we became the first Victorian school, and only the second in Australia, to introduce the IBDP. Since then the Programme has enjoyed increasing popularity, with almost one-third of the 2015 year 12 cohort choosing the IBDP as their preferred pathway to university study. An extensive selection of subjects, and our highly qualified and committed staff teaching across both the VCE and IBDP, ensure our students enjoy the best support and tuition available.
