Our Secondary School focuses on supporting and enabling students to reach their goals, preparing them for their chosen career pathway, and equipping them for life beyond School.

Our Teaching and Learning Programs for all students involve gradually increasing academic challenges and a wider range of course choices. Students are expected to be more independent and self-directed in their learning and study habits as they progress through Years 7-12.

The School delivers the mandated Western Australian state curriculum. In Years 7 to 10, curriculum and assessment is offered in eight Learning Areas to prepare students for Years 11 and 12:

  • English
  • Mathematics
  • Health and Physical Education
  • Science
  • Humanities and Social Sciences
  • Languages
  • Technologies
  • The Arts

In Years 11 and 12, students complete the Western Australian Certificate of Education (WACE). In consultation with staff, students are recommended a pathway based on their future aspirations and academic abilities. Further information on the curriculum and assessment that is offered for each year level is available in Subject Handbooks.

Understanding and promoting growth in learning for every Secondary student is of critical importance. A range of assessment data is collected and analysed to inform learning and assessment design. This includes NAPLAN results, performance on academic ability and achievement tests, and school grade achievement.

Students are provided with opportunities to make choices about their learning and to specialise in areas that interest them.

In Years 9 and 10, students choose electives (optional) subjects.

When making choices for Years 11 and 12, students are offered extensive course counselling to ensure they select a pathway that inspires them to be the very best that they can be.
