Year 10

The Senior School curriculum at St Margaret’s School is built upon a long tradition of academic excellence. We are committed to providing a challenging and enriching learning environment designed to develop confident and articulate students who have the skills, knowledge, values and attitudes required for them to contribute meaningfully in the national and international community. Our teaching and learning programs recognise the uniqueness of each student. Small class sizes and our open and caring culture ensure that each student is well-known to her teachers. We also recognise that an effective team approach between home and school is essential in the educational process. St Margaret’s School offers a vibrant and engaging curriculum which ensures that we are best placed to maximise the potential of each individual student.
