Seymour's Frameworks

Seymour Learning Framework

Learning framework

The nine domains of the Seymour Learning Framework articulate the mindsets and dispositions that we wish to develop in each of our girls in their journey from the Early Years to Year 12.

As learning is a lifelong endeavour, our overarching objective is for a Seymour Girl to be self-aware and reflective about her strengths and growth areas in these domains. Our teachers, coaches and instructors work individually with each girl, using these nine domains to personalise the classroom experience.

Seymour GIRLbeing Framework


Through our unique GIRLbeing Framework, our tailored and age-specific ‘Strength, Optimism and Justice’ (SOJ) curriculum encourages the growth of gritty, resilient and independent learners in a school environment that models and nurtures the attributes of a successful woman in the 21st century.

We recognise that there are many issues and factors that impact upon the ability of girls and young women to negotiate their way through an increasingly complex and rapidly changing world. The setbacks, triumphs, hardships and successes experienced along the way, are what help students to grow, regardless of the destination. The GIRLbeing Framework guides the growth of each Seymour girl, resulting in young women with strong hearts and minds.

Seymour Service Learning Framework

Service Learning framework

Since Seymour was founded in 1922, Crescam Ministrando, I grow by serving, has been the College’s motto and guiding philosophy, based on our Christian ethos. Service Learning is embedded in the curriculum from Reception to Year 12 and the whole-school approach is centred around ‘Justice’ for people and the world we live in.  

In the Junior School, the focus is on fostering an awareness of the needs of others at home and at school, and learning about environmental issues. In the Middle and Senior School, service learning opportunities are both inside and outside the classroom, with issues being firmly embedded in our curriculum. Through many practical and hands on experiences, girls learn about communities, the real problems facing them and the democratic processes needed to effect change.
