Engaged and Challenged to Develop Critical and Creative Thinking
Students progress to the High School for Stages Four, Five and Six. In High School, students are offered a rich and diverse curriculum, ensuring that they have choice and flexibility in regards to what they study. Students are engaged and challenged to become critical and creative thinkers in a disciplined and supportive learning environment. Our small classes, pastoral care and mentoring program ensure that students are provided with the knowledge, skills and understanding to succeed at school and beyond.
Students are encouraged to contribute to the life of the College by participating in a variety of co-curricular and extra-curricular activities where they can develop their talents and pursue their interests.
