    I moved my kids to this school 2 years ago and have never looked back. Fantastic school very small and personal attention to detail to every child. Great principal and all teachers very approachable and caring.

    More Than Just Senior Secondary

    The three years of Senior Secondary are a time of growth in character, learning and planning for future endeavours. Our young people are beginning to emerge as adults and are looking toward their graduation and the world that awaits them outside the school gates.

    Senior students take an active role in leadership within the College community and contribute towards setting the culture of Freshwater. We have a range of subjects and learning pathways which prepare our Seniors for their future.


    Year Ten students study the core subjects of English, Maths, Science and Humanities. Our students in Year Ten also have the choice of choosing different electives. Year Ten is a foundational year to develop concepts and knowledge for your child’s entry into Years 11 and 12 where they are offered a full range of academic and/or vocational programs to set them up for their careers and life out of school.

    All students also participate in chapels, camps, Christian Living studies and PGP (sport and enrichment activities).


    We recognize that learning is about the whole person and therefore offer many extra sporting, creative and extra-curricular opportunities for our senior students as they prepare for adulthood. Through our sporting teams, chapels, music programs, camps, academic competitions, community outreaches and leadership development programs, we create opportunities for students to grow and develop in character.


    We understand that some students require a hands-on approach to learning and therefore students can choose their educational pathway to either leave out the OP component or combine both OP and vocational education and training for their senior studies according to what works for them as individuals.

    Students can also participate in school-based traineeships out in the workforce across a range of vocational areas. These are also integrated into a student’s timetable so they can remain OP eligible if they wish.
