Senior School

The Senior School at King’s College, from Year 7 to Year 12, offers an outstanding program of academic, vocational, sporting, cultural and social experiences to cater for student’s individual needs and interests preparing them for life after VCE.

Year 7 and Year 8

The transition from Primary school to Secondary school is an exciting time for students. It is the next stage in a lifelong educational journey leading to new experiences and challenges. After the relatively familiar surroundings of primary school, it can be daunting moving to senior school where there are so many new experiences to navigate.
King’s College has many initiatives in place to ensure the transition to secondary school is a positive experience for our students and their parents. All of this is underpinned by our strong commitment to our Student Wellbeing program.

Year 9 Connect Program

Unique in our region is the Connect Program for Year 9 students.

This program specifically caters for the needs of Year 9 students. It serves as a bridge to the final three years of schooling by incorporating a wide range of excellent developmental opportunities including the completion of the Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award, a week-long community service tour and a five-day expedition along the Great South-West Walk.

Year 10

The Year 10 program is aimed at preparing students for VCE and the increased academic demands that will be required.

Students complete the compulsory subjects of the Australian Curriculum as well as some school-based electives. They are introduced to the rigors of the VCE by completing one subject at Unit 1 & 2 level and have an opportunity to pursue a VET in Schools course at South West TAFE.

VCE

Since King’s College commenced offering VCE programs in 2002, students have consistently achieved some of the best results in the South West.

Courses available vary from year to year depending on student interest and aim to provide the necessary breadth for students to pursue their desired pathways. Studies not offered at King’s College may be pursued through Distance Education. VCE studies are supplemented with Personal Development and Christian Studies courses.

While most students from King’s College have been successful in being accepted into university courses across the full spectrum of disciplines including medicine, veterinary science, engineering, law, journalism and teaching, others have qualified in a variety of trade related industries.

Pastoral Care

The College provides high levels of pastoral care. Student have access to pastoral care teachers as well as male and female College Chaplains. The College use a restorative approach to managing student behaviour, looking to restore relationships between people when things don’t go to plan.

Our pastoral care program focuses on Christian values and includes a Positive Education Program. This approach provides a strong sense of wellbeing, belonging and security that affirms students in their dignity and self-worth, assisting students to achieve their full potential: physically, socially, intellectually, emotionally and spiritually.
