Year 11 and 12

Our aim is that Whyalla Secondary College Senior School students will achieve their South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE)  and continue further study or move into the workplace. We work hard to build connections for our students to continue to thrive after their secondary schooling is completed. We extensively use SACE flexibilities and tailor our broad curriculum offering to cater for a range of student’s preferred post-secondary education pathways. We provide authentic learning and innovative academic, vocational, industry & entrepreneurial opportunities, and our students who achieve an ATAR gain entry to University and TAFE, whilst others complete their Vocational Education and Training (VET) are offered school based apprenticeships/traineeships, and move to meaningful employment.

At senior school, we aim to develop the ‘whole person’ and we focus on fostering positive relationships across our learning community through our MIND (Mentoring in New Dimensions) program. By enabling our MIND teachers to know and understand all learners in our care, at Whyalla Secondary College we ensure our senior students are supported to thrive by exploring their career options, maintaining academic progress, identifying potential constraints that hinder success, being resilient when faced with a challenge, designing their own futures with a high level of self efficacy and developing a sense of belonging.

Our students and community are fortunate in having enthusiastic, loyal, and passionate teachers and leaders who work hard to prepare our students for a rapidly changing world and who are highly committed to getting the best outcomes possible for each student motivated by the unwavering belief that every single young person in our system has the right to succeed and to thrive to the best of their ability. Our enthusiastic, independent learners are supported to thrive in a safe and positive environment by dedicated, knowledgeable teachers who reflect on their practice and offer quality differentiated teaching. Whyalla Secondary College senior school community is a high performing learning environment that delivers a relevant, rigorous inclusive curriculum focused on students’ capabilities and wellbeing development.

Complementing the SACE capabilities that accesses students in developing effective employability skills for the 21st Century, ATRiUM focuses on assisting every student to competently develop all five capabilities and empower students as active citizens and participating members of the community.
