Pre-Senior

Year 9

A Unique Program Developing Resilience and Independence

The shift from adolescence to early adulthood is a crucial stage of a child’s development.

Our unique Pre-Senior Program helps students transition from Middle School to Senior School as smoothly as possible.

Boys and girls continue to learn under the Parallel Education Model, which allows them to focus on study while enjoying more opportunities to socialise with the opposite gender.

Pre-Senior students complete a comprehensive curriculum, with a strong academic focus.

Engaging Electives

Year 9 includes compulsory subjects and engaging electives. English, Mathematics, Science, Humanities and at least one language are compulsory, providing a strong grounding for numerous VCE study options.

Our program aims to develop resilient, independent learners equipped to handle the challenges of Senior School and the VCE.

Developing Global Citizens

Students enjoy a range of exciting opportunities to broaden their horizons and encourage independence and maturity, including the chance to spend time at the Haileybury International School in Tianjin, China.

Our Expeditions and Options Program offers unforgettable 10 to 12-day off-campus experiences.

Students can choose from locations such as the Tasmanian wilderness, Victoria’s High Plains, Wyperfeld National Park/Mt Arapiles, Kakadu, China and the USA.

The City CHASE Experiential Learning Program sees students visit our City campus and explore all that Melbourne’s CBD offers, to build self-reliance, teamwork and awareness of social issues in our community.

Students also participate in a range of Social Justice activities and develop life skills through our Personal Excellence Program and have the opportunity to complete the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Program.
