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.
