Junior School to Senior School
By providing a blend of junior and senior school practices this
gently introduces students to the demands and responsibilities of
Senior school, ensuring they are emotionally and academically
prepared for their biggest challenge to date.
Key to this approach is exposure to specialist learning resources (teachers, tools and classrooms), collaborative teaching between primary and secondary school teachers and learning strategies that involve a high level of interactive and multi-sensory learning.
Students take on leadership roles in Years 6 and 12 and nurture 'older brother' relationships with younger boys in the school, which contributes to a community with family values.
Transition to University - encouraging independence
We support our students in their senior years to develop individual study habits, critical thinking skills and to take on personal responsibility, which will help to set them up for success at university and life beyond.
Our Study Habits series, which includes formal and informal briefings for students and their parents, the development of individual study plans, our vocational testing and tertiary briefing combine to ensure our students are equipped for the demands of tertiary education and adult life.
There is also additional tutoring available as well as a mentoring program where every Year 12 student selects a staff mentor. These mentors assist them in navigating the HSC year and maximising their results.
