The Senior School offers students in Years 7-10 a vertical curriculum leading to either the Victorian Certificate of Education or the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme in Years 11 & 12.
By the end of Year 10, students must satisfactorily complete a minimum number of units in each of the major curriculum areas. For example, eight units of English, six units of Science and so on. The vertical curriculum allows students to accelerate in areas in which they are strong, consolidate in areas where they are less able and to specialise in areas in which they have a particular interest.
In some instances students will complete their secondary education in five years while others will do so in the usual six or even seven years. All courses of study are semester based, so students select units for study twice each year. All units have the same time allocation – 200 minutes each week.
