All students can achieve success

At the heart of our approach to teaching and learning is the fundamental belief that all students can achieve success at school.

We know that the quality of teaching is the most significant school-based factor affecting student outcomes; therefore, our aim is to provide students with a consistently high standard of education based on evidential research into effective teaching and current learning theory.

We provide a holistic curriculum, actioned through differentiated learning determined by an individual’s needs, that is designed to support and empower students in their pursuit for excellence. Student wellbeing is at the core of academic success and an intrinsic aspect of the School’s ethos. Underpinning our academic curriculum is a progressive wellbeing program based on the principles of Positive Psychology.

Our staff are supported in their endeavours to enhance the quality of student learning and educational outcomes through high-quality professional development. The overarching goal of our approach to teaching and learning is to foster the development of key learning attributes that will prepare our students to lead lives of purpose and success.
