Senior Years (10-12)

Students in our Senior Years are offered individualised educational opportunities to cater for their personal educational needs, based on their own aspirations for their future after school. Our aim is to ensure that every student who leaves The Heights School has the capabilities and skills to take control of their lives in ways that will benefit not only themselves, but the community and society in which they live and contribute to.

We do this by providing expert teachers who deliver rigorous teaching and learning programs which encourage students to become optimistic, powerful and independent critical thinkers and learners. Our students do this by modelling the school’s values of "have a go, go hard and keep going" by focussing on extending inquiry, critical thinking and problem solving.

The Senior Years at The Heights School provides:

  • Flexible and individualised curriculum within a timetable that allows for the diverse and varied interests and post school aspirations of our students. These include opportunities for our students to study external VET (Vocational Education Teaching) programs, Flexible Learning Options (FLO) and subject acceleration for identified gifted learners who also have opportunity to apply for the Headstart Program and the University of Adelaide.
  • Dedicated Senior Years study space
  • Access to new and specialised STEM teaching and learning spaces and teaching practices
  • Personal Development curriculum that is based on the school’s $50 000 Career Development Strategy
  • Mentoring of individual students
  • Dedicated expert Research Project team of teachers, who consistently achieve outstanding results
  • Pathways which provide a seamless transition from school to employment, TAFE or University
  • 2019 Year 10, 11 & 12 Stationery List
