Its virtual nature allows us to honour our Diamond Education Model, ensuring our senior students remain primarily in single gender environment, highly connected to their campus as our leaders and role models of the school.
The College wrap allows us to review our VCE students (Years 11 and 12) as a cohort, with dedicated specialist staff that monitor, individual, subject, gender and cohort progress allowing for rapid interventions to ensure students can achieve their personal best academically.
Treating the cohort as a College allows the School to offer the greatest breadth of subject options for VCE, as it allows for composite gender classes to be formed where their is lower demand for a subject*
Our VCE results are renouned, driven bt student ambition and capability, smaller class sizes that allow for individual attention and care, as well as expert dedicated VCE teachers, many of whom are or have been VCE examiners.
Be believe our College cohort approach with some shared classes as well many opportunities for shared experiences outside of the classroom helps these mature students prepare for their next steps at university or the work place, getting them ready for the real world and life!
*All subjects are offered subject to demand.
We continue of offer a single gender-based education in our Senior College. Students are based on their single gender campuses as leaders and are taught core and popular subjects in a single gender environment.
Our smaller interactive class sizes ensure students receive the attention and guidance they need. In 2020 our average VCE class was 9.78 students.
Dedicated Academic Oversight
