Delivering the renowned International Baccalaureate (IB), our secondary school campus is divided into three parts: Cycle 4 (Years 7 and 8), Cycle 5 (Years 9 and 10), and Cycle 6 (Years 11 and 12). In the final years of Secondary School, students have the option to choose between our Montessori Careers Program or the renowned International Baccalaureate program.

Unique to our school is our Occupations program. In years 7 – 10 students are offered this course – where they learn real life skills designed to equip them for the workforce.
