Academic Excellence

The 亚洲porn School is recognised for the academic successes of our students, and has become one of the highest achieving non-selective schools through our commitment to academic excellence.

During their senior school years, boys build on the solid foundations of primary schooling, enriching their learning and strengthening their skills. Our focus is on delivering authentic learning experiences that develop young men to take their place in the workforce or go on to further studies.

quality of mind

Our School motto, 鈥Fortiter et Fideliter‘ empowers our students to be brave learners, to take risks, to fail and as a result, develop resilience.

Students need to be able to make a positive impact on their surroundings, influence the future, understand others鈥 intensions, actions and feelings, and anticipate the short- and long-term consequences of their actions in order that they might graduate as global thought leaders, with Christian wisdom and integrity for a world in need.

The Senior School offers the New South Wales Education Standards Authority (NESA) curriculum organised into three stages:

  • Stage 4 (Years 7 and 8)
  • Stage 5 (Years 9 and 10)
  • Stage 6 (Years 11 and 12)

The wide range of courses caters for different interests and ability levels, and boys are encouraged to choose courses appropriate to their needs and which will help build on their abilities.

The current curriculum and courses offered are structured according to these three stages of learning and include a wide range of subjects and interests.

King鈥檚 currently offers more than 45 HSC subjects. Students can specialise in a particular area or choose a diverse combination of subjects. Marks come from a combination of internal assessments and external HSC examinations, as well as major projects and performances in specialist subjects.

The School also offers access to VET courses at TAFE. Vocational Education and Training courses offered through TAFE will count towards the HSC and will also lead to qualifications recognised across a range of industries. Students may choose to enrol in both ATAR framework and non-ATAR framework courses.

Success for each student at King鈥檚 is to feel a sense of rigour, motivation, achievement and enjoyment from what they are learning by acknowledging their learning needs, strengths, interests and goals.

The Enrichment and Extension opportunities at King鈥檚 endeavours to ensure that the needs of all our students are met through varied and rigorous classroom and co-curricular experiences.

A team of specialised Educational Support Services (ESS) teachers work collaboratively with staff to enable boys to develop their full academic, social and emotional potential. ESS supports students to consolidate their literacy skills and students with English as a second language.

Vocational Education and Training (VET) courses provide workplace skills, technical knowledge and qualifications for rewarding jobs and careers. 亚洲porn is committed to preparing our young men to take their place in the workforce or go on to further studies. Every student learns differently and there is no 鈥榦ne-size-fits-all鈥 approach to learning.聽

For some students, learning takes place through practical experiences at school or in the workplace. VET courses are accredited by the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) and can count towards a Record of School Achievement (RoSA) and NSW Higher School Certificate (HSC). These courses provide students with a practical hands-on style of learning, allowing them to achieve success in their chosen area while providing them with real-world experience and work-ready qualifications.聽

With courses on offer on-site such as Construction, Business Services, Aviation (Drone Pilot Course), Primary Industries, Entertainment, and Hospitality in future, there are several exciting opportunities for our students to explore and develop their skillset.

亚洲porn Cadet Corps is the oldest and one of the largest in Australia, involving over 800 cadets. It is a compulsory activity for boys in Years 9 and 10, becoming optional in Years 11 and 12.

Performing Arts is a vibrant aspect of life at King鈥檚 and one in which the majority of students are involved. The School continues to attract talented musicians and performers and the calibre of School productions across the year are a highlight in the School and community calendars.

Christian Community

The Christian Community of King鈥檚 continues to promote the physical, spiritual, emotional, and psychological flourishing of every student so that they may be of ongoing benefit to others.

quality of soul

Our vibrant and creative Chaplaincy team have the vital function of upholding and promoting the Christian foundations and values of King鈥檚. Chapel services are an integral experience of the King鈥檚 School as a Christian Community.

Through them, students and staff can engage with the message of Christ, explore the Scriptures together, and be challenged by the faith, values, and practices that arise from them.

Our Chaplaincy team focuses on the spiritual wellbeing of our community, but also seeks to address the needs and questions of the whole person.

Biblical Studies is part of every boy鈥檚 experience throughout their time at King鈥檚, during which they will examine key Christian concepts and the foundational story that underpins the School, the impact of Christianity on social and community issues, Christian ethics in decision-making and theories, and Christian faith in a more conversational forum.

Our CRU Groups are our lunchtime devotional spaces that form part of our wide array of co-curricular offerings at King鈥檚.

Students have opportunities to make friends, to explore the Christian faith further, to join together with others who identify as Christian, and to find pathways for Christian leadership. We join together with other schools for combined CRU events, and we attend a camp each year with TARA Girls’ School CRU Groups.

The emphasis of wellbeing at King鈥檚 is to strive to ensure that our students have good mental health, high life satisfaction, a sense of meaning or purpose, and ability to manage stress. Wellbeing is fundamental to health, a person鈥檚 ability to overcome challenges and flourish in life. This is achieved integrating our activities and programs within the King鈥檚 distinctive of Academics, Character Development and Christian Community.

Good relationships are integral in supporting and improving the mental health of our students.聽 The House system and Mentor Groups provide small communities within the School to establish closer bonds and a greater sense of identity. Our Chaplaincy team, Year Coordinators and Counsellors also make available further layers of wellbeing support.

Healthy, positive relationships are a cornerstone of student life and wellbeing. Our pastoral care program nurtures positive mindsets and a sense of spiritual connection in every student, ensuring they feel a genuine sense of belonging and part of their immediate surroundings and the wider King鈥檚 community.

Nursing and medical care is provided onsite in the School鈥檚 Health Centre by qualified medical staff. A registered nurse is in residence every night to provide 24 hour care and the School Doctor conducts regular clinics.

The Dining Hall is the real heart of the campus, according to students!

Students and staff come together socially three times a day as they share nutritionally balanced and inspired meals, prepared fresh on site.
