In Years 11 and 12 students may opt to take the prestigious International Baccalaureate Diploma rather than the state based WACE/ATAR pathway.
The IB Diploma is widely considered an excellent pathway for future success. It is designed as an integrated whole, where subjects across a range of disciplines work together to ensure students develop their creativity, critical thinking skills and global awareness as well as being active members of their communities.
A Memorandum of Understanding with our brother school, Scotch College, allows for increased diversity and wider subject choice at Diploma level.
