Senior College (10-12)
Welcome to our Senior College
Preparing Students for Life Beyond School
Spanning from Year 10 to Year 12, the St Andrew’s Cathedral School Senior College is focussed on preparing students for their final exams and, ultimately, for life. With its coeducational ethos and cosmopolitan Sydney city backdrop, the Senior College offers students a real life experience to prepare them for the world beyond the classroom.
Responsible and Independent Students
The Senior College at St Andrew’s Cathedral School continually works towards developing responsibility and independence in the students’ final school years. We achieve this by being relational in all aspects of the academic, pastoral and cultural life of the school. Responsibility cannot be encouraged without some freedom; however it must also be encouraged through a framework of positive choices for the future. We want our young people to be in a position to contribute to their world when they leave us. In the final years of school at St Andrew’s, the character, integrity and sense of justice of our students are as important as a good ATAR.
A Large Community with a Broad Range of Study Options
Our fully co-educational Senior College caters for more students than any other section of the School. A larger Senior College is appropriate for 15 to 18 year olds, where it may have been too imposing for students of Junior or Middle School ages. As students grow and mature, they are able to exercise choice more effectively. A bigger community allows the Senior College to offer a broad range of subjects that suit these options. Students have a range of educational choices and the opportunity to undertake either the International Baccalaureate (IB) or Higher School Certificate (HSC).
