Our Senior School
A Vibrant Community of Learners
With a comprehensive Senior School curriculum that encourages both collaborative and individual learning, our students are taught to develop negotiation, problem solving, communication, presentation, planning and researching skills, and they are encouraged to participate actively and to stretch themselves. From music to sporting, leadership, community service, environmental, outdoor education and exchanges, our students have so many opportunities available to them; all of which play a part in their personal development.
St Catherine's is concerned with developing the whole girl so that she is confident with herself and with her place in the community. Our goals are in keeping with our founders' original aim to prepare students for life; not only to educate girls, but empower them to take ownership of their learning, to take risks, to immerse themselves in new experiences and to understand themselves, each other and what it means to be wise.
At St Catherine's, we are committed to ensuring that each student is able to enquire deeply, is responsive to challenge and change and is ready to lead. Through the development of these skills, we aim to shape adults for the future who can add value to their community and chosen field of endeavour.
