Senior study

The senior study was designed to exclusively meet the needs of senior students.

Senior students who opt to drop a subject in Year 12 are timetabled to attend the centre so that they can access the support that may be required in their final year at school. The facility is a safe and nurturing space; a supportive environment that allows access to resources and assists students in their learning. Students have the opportunity to engage in independent study to complete tasks, as well as the chance to work with their peers and become involved in collaborative learning activities.

The centre contains a vast collection of HSC material, past papers, study guides, computer and internet access and many other resources to support students. 

The senior study adviser collaborates with each student to create a Personalised Learning Plan that identifies learning goals and effective strategies for success. The adviser also invites each student to explore post–school opportunities and to create a Pathway Plan.

Applications for universities, scholarships and programs are completed with the adviser to ensure students are well informed of the opportunities that are available.

Throughout their senior years, students have access to university visits, industry guests, study workshops, individual tutoring, and valuable wellbeing advice in preparation for the HSC and beyond.
