- Student Life
In Year 11 there is a strong emphasis on independence, communication and the transition to a post school environment.
This is an important year for students to explore a wider range of subjects in line with their interests and strengths, and to challenge themselves academically. Students will be gaining a better understanding of their preferred pathway for Year 12 and beyond.

All students complete compulsory Stage 1 SACE subjects for Literacy and Numeracy and can start their Stage 2 Research Project.
With English and Mathematics as the two core subjects, students will have multiple subject choices across a range of key learning areas:
Year 11 students will also have one RAVE lesson each week.
Further learning and growth opportunities occur outside the classroom through leadership responsibilities, a broad range of extra-curricular clubs and activities, an extensive sports program and performing art opportunities.
