Secondary Program

 

 

The secondary program provides an exciting, innovative, and vibrant learning environment and opportunities. The most profound learning occurs when there is a healthy relationship between teacher and student. We focus our attention on relationships between all members of the Secondary School community and value those relationships in achieving quality outcomes for students.

The curriculum aims to engage students and foster their interest in major key learning areas.  Adopting the Cambridge IGCSE Program in Year 7 - 10 and the Australian Matriculation Program in Year 11 - 12, our students are equipped with a solid foundation, which will successfully prepare them for the challenges of the 21st century.

 

Lower Secondary (Year 7 - Year 10)

Lower secondary students benefit from a broad and balanced program delivered through the Cambridge IGCSE (International General Certificate of Secondary Education) curriculum.  The Cambridge IGCSE is the world’s most popular international qualification for 14 to 16-year-olds, attracting almost 500,000 entries from 144 different countries every year. The program offers between Years 7-10 provide a great moment of learning, discovery, and joy for every student. St. Mark's broad and comprehensive curriculum ensures that each student develops skills and knowledge in all the learning areas and helps students to begin identifying where their interests and strengths lie.  St. Mark's carefully plans and designs our curriculum to ensure that students will receive a strong education foundation and possess a competitive edge to meet any educational challenges.  We are committed to providing quality education and with this commitment, many of our students have achieved stellar results with their IGCSE examinations each year.

Upper Secondary (Year 11 – Year 12)

In partnership with the Western Australian Government, our Australian Matriculation Program (Australian High School Curriculum) is designed to make a difference in students’ lives. We do this by providing students access to a high-quality, relevant, and internationally recognised curriculum. Students will receive both the Australian Matriculation Certificate of Education, as well as the ATAR (Australian Tertiary Admission Rank) upon completing Year 12.

This program is of one and a half years in duration, and our graduating students will benefit from commencing universities one year earlier than their peers in other schools.

These certificates provide direct pathways to all Australian universities, as well as admissions to universities worldwide, which includes the competitive higher institutions in the United Kingdom, the EU, United States, Canada, New Zealand, Singapore, Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea, China, and India.
