Broad Curriculum

Our curriculum is designed to challenge and extend our boys within a supportive framework. In the early years we have a major focus on literacy numeracy and thinking. This focus is extended in the early secondary school where students study two languages core subjects such as Science mathematics english History and Geography as well as being exposed to more active learning in the fields of IT drama music art woodcraft and PE. Our senior secondary curriculum is focussed on the VCE and we have a proud record of excellent results at the end of Year 12.
