Senior: 10-13 Introduction | Secondary School Adelaide

In the Senior School, King’s students are well supported to optimise their academic, technical, sporting, artistic and spiritual growth.

At Year 10, all students study Mathematics, Science, English, Physical Education, Faith Studies and develop their Personal Learning Plan (PLP). In addition, students choose elective subjects from the Performing Arts (Dance, Drama and/or Music), Visual Arts, History, Geography, Information Technology, Home Economics, Design and Technology (Wood Technology or Automotive Studies) and a Language Other Than English (either German or Japanese). There is provision for students to study Mathematics at Stage I level. Year 10 students continue the Outdoor Education Program with a Bushwalk in the Flinders Ranges.

All Senior School students participate in an integrated Faith Studies / Pastoral Care program, allowing them to explore issues within a Christian framework.

Similarly, a comprehensive range of subjects is offered at Stage 2 (usually completed in Year 12). Students complete their Research Project as a compulsory element of the SACE. Full details regarding SACE requirements can be found on the SACE Board Website. Subject offerings are detailed in our Curriculum Guidelines Book, available on the web site. (links at the bottom of this page).

Senior School Students are encouraged to get involved in Service Learning opportunities based upon the Gospel values that emanate from the calling of Jesus for us to be loving people.

Students can study courses designed to access pathways to Tertiary Education (University or TAFE) or employment. Tertiary institutions have a variety of different entry requirements and our Year 12 students receive relevant advice on subject choice through our counselling services.

Students can also commence career training through our VET (Vocational Education and Training) programs. This takes the form of industry-based training completed in two ways. The first is through a specific school subject as part of SACE. The second is through a Registered Training Organisation (R.T.O.) external to King’s. Students may complement their studies at school by attending the R.T.O. one day a week to enhance their knowledge and practical skills in their chosen pathway.

Students have engaged in areas such as Automotive Technology, Hospitality, Sport and Recreation, Graphic Design, Information Technology, Light Metal Fabrication, Retail and Hair and Beauty through our VET Program. Such learning opportunities are negotiated with The Manager of Learning. King’s Students can have Recognition of Community Learning which is designed to encourage and value a wider range of learning than only that achieved in schools (e.g. Duke of Edinburgh Awards, First Aid Certificates).

Depending on subjects chosen, King’s students may engage in a variety of ‘Highlight Activities’:

  • PE classes undertake Bushwalks in the Flinders Ranges (up to a week in duration in Year 12);
  • History and Legal Studies classes can visit Canberra and Sydney;
  • Language students have the opportunity to exchange with our partner schools in Japan and Germany;
  • An overseas Service Learning trip to Cambodia.
