Senior School

We recognise that girls in the Senior School (Years 10–12) are growing in maturity and independence. Preparation for life beyond secondary school is a key focus for this stage of our students’ lives.

Our approach includes a wellbeing pathway that encourages resilience and personal development, and an academic pathway that promotes excellence in scholarship.

While the College celebrates a long, rich history and tradition, we are also forward thinking. All staff are experts on current learning research and this informs all our interactions with the young women in our care. Our students are focused on 21st century skills and competencies.

Each student’s learning journey is individual and our programs are flexible to meet these needs. We welcome parents to join us for a discussion on how we can engage, challenge and build confidence in their daughter. A tour of the College is a great place to start.
