Secondary

In the secondary school, girls in Years 7 and 8 study a wide range of subjects, allowing them a broad experience across the disciplines. Students in Years 9 and 10 retain elements of this core curriculum, but make some choices regarding the electives they wish to pursue. The Year 11s and 12s all undertake an English subject and choose five others which are reflective of their interests, abilities and aspirations.

As St Margaret’s is a multi-pathway school which personalises learning for each individual the suite of subject offerings is diverse. It includes academically rigorous authority subjects as well as vocational options ranging from certificate courses to diplomas.
