The curriculum is firmly embedded in the requirements of the NSW Board of Studies with a bias towards the traditional main stream academic courses. Electives begin at Year 8; these reflect this bias while maintaining a balance between practical and theoretical studies. At Stage 6 (Years 11 and 12) the emphasis towards University entrance is reflected in that there are no courses offered that do not contribute to the ATAR (the basis upon which University entrance is determined). Vocational Education Training (VET) courses are also possible. At this time only Hospitality and Tourism are offered on-site, but TAFE courses and In-School Apprenticeships can be integrated into a student’s timetable although additional costs do apply.
Reflecting our Christian ethos as an Anglican school, Christian Studies is undertaken by students in Years K – 10 and offered for Years 11 and 12 respectively.
Whilst not all our students have university entrance as their goal, the College provides a firm foundation for future study beyond school, whether that is in the immediate or distant future.
In summary we offer a structured liberal education based on the current syllabus preparing students for a successful future beyond school. Our philosophy is to equip students for life whilst developing and encouraging their particular aspirations. Our extensive extra and co-curricular programs complement our curriculum and help to build the whole person.
