Senior School

The St Brigid’s College Senior School curriculum provides opportunities for students to develop skills and attitudes that will allow them to make informed choices about their future.

St Brigid’s College Senior School curriculum provides opportunities for students to develop skills and attitudes that will allow them to make informed choices about their future. A wide choice of subjects caters for students’ individual needs, interests and strengths.

At Year 10, students enter the Senior School and are encouraged to develop new skills in time management and independent learning, as the academic rigour of their courses increases. Year 11 and 12 students are assisted in designing their own courses after taking part in an intensive career information and advisory programme. Goal setting is a vital component of this process so that a student’s pre-requisites for further study or employment are being met. There is also the opportunity for students to combine study at school with training in industry through the Workplace Learning Programme and School-Based Traineeships.

Students are encouraged to pursue personal excellence in a nurturing environment that focuses on the development of the whole person. Interpersonal and self-management skills, which are a vital part of becoming independent and responsible life-long learners, are at the heart of the Senior School philosophy.
St Brigid’s offers to its girls a legacy of growth and learning to take with them into the future. In preparation for this, students of the Senior School are given the opportunity to pursue studies in a dynamic range of subjects. Recognising the demands of society in shaping the way of the future, the College provides the opportunities for students to develop skills in internet and multimedia technologies across the curriculum.

St Brigid’s challenges young women to take on a responsible role in the wider local, national and international communities and to be proactive members of our society. There are many opportunities for leadership and service provided. All senior students are encouraged to develop their own personal qualities and strengths by participating in such programmes, and in the exceptional range of extra curricular sporting and cultural opportunities offered.
