Students in our Senior School continue to grow, drawing upon their values and educational experiences, as they start to focus on what's to come when they graduate.
There is an emphasis on learning, co-curricular choice and participation in community service. There is also an added focus on preparing students for their post-school academic, employment and spiritual endeavours.
Students in Year 10 complete their International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme. Students in Years 11 and 12 may then study either the IB Diploma or the South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE).
Within both curriculum models, students choose subjects from the essential areas of learning – the Arts, English, languages, physical education, mathematics, science, studies of society and technology. Religious education and pastoral care programmes are provided through Home Group classes at each year level.
Senior School Subject Areas
Students in Year 10 complete their International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme. Students in Years 11 and 12 study either the IB Diploma or the South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE).
While students select either the IB Diploma or SACE at the beginning of Year 11, all students will meet the criteria necessary to complete Stage 1 of their SACE Certificate. This enables an IB student to transfer to SACE for Year 12 if they decide this is a better path for them, in consultation with their Careers and Subjects Advisor.
The IB Diploma
The IB Diploma Programme is a rigorous pre‐university course of study for students in Years 11 and 12. There is a strong emphasis on encouraging students to develop intercultural understanding, open‐mindedness, and the attitudes necessary for them to respect and evaluate a range of points of view.
South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE)
The SACE is an internationally recognised senior secondary qualification that provides students with the knowledge, skills, and capabilities they require to advance to further learning and work as confident and responsible global citizens. Upon successful completion, the SACE qualifies graduates for admission to tertiary institutions both nationally and abroad.
The SACE offers subjects and courses at Stage 1 (Year 11) and Stage 2 (Year 12). Students acquire valuable literacy, numeracy, critical thinking and problem-solving skills. The SACE helps students to learn how to work with and alongside others, and to understand how one’s decisions can affect people, situations and the world.
