Senior School Years 10 – 12

The senior years of schooling see students start to more closely align with their career aspirations.

Students in these years undertake more formal and standardised assessments and are working towards the credentials that they will receive as part of the Record of School Achievement (RoSA) in Years 10-11 and the Higher School Certificate (HSC) in Year 12.

During Stage 6, students have a more flexible timetable and the importance of being self-directed learners is a key factor for success. The Senior Start program that commences is Stage 5 is designed to assist students with management of learning skills and this is further supported through Study Skills Days and mentoring programs.
