At Aquinas, Years 7 to 9 are all about transition. Boys are going from primary school to secondary school; from young boys to young men. Our curriculum is designed to support boys as they go through this period of change.
There is a breadth of academic activities to engage boys in their learning and enable them to explore a diversity of offerings. This enables students to make decisions on future subject selections based on their own experience and interests.
Academically gifted students are challenged through the St Thomas Aquinas Program that promotes excellence in thinking with the EDGE (Environments Designed for Gifted Extension) program of extension-based activities. Through problem solving and interest based learning, boys develop their critical thinking skills and creative talents. The program is offered on the basis of academic achievement and extends from Year 7 to Year 9.
From Year 10 to Year 12, students can choose between a diversity of courses appropriate for their interests. These include the ability to gain university entry through WACE, or get hands-on work experience through INSTEP.
Whatever your son decides on, our teaching staff will help him achieve his personal best.
