Secondary School

All students work through the Secondary School to complete their South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE). We offer flexible pathways for our students to achieve the best outcome for their futures whether University entrance, a trade career or a personalised course of study.

By working with our students we determine the areas that interest them, match their abilities and meet the requirements of future study and careers. Our students enjoy a personalised course of study which allows them to gain industry accredited units of competency through Vocational Education and Training (VET), complete their SACE, achieve a Technical and Further Education (TAFE) entry score or achieve an Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) to enable them to enter university.


Students can choose from a range of subjects included VET options to achieve an ATAR. Students achieving the ATAR for their desired course can apply to enter university courses throughout Australia and in selected universities around the world. We offer more than 20 different options for senior students from the traditional Maths, Science and Humanities through to Tourism, Sports Studies, Business & Enterprise and other career specific subjects.


Our students can choose from a range of VET options to build all or part of an industry recognised qualification that can be used to enter a College of TAFE. Examples of courses offered include Information Technology, Health Support Services, Automotive, Electrotechnology, General Construction and Sport and Recreation.


Working as a partner school in the Western Adelaide Trade Schools for the Future our students have access to the expertise of Apprenticeship Brokers who match students seeking an apprenticeship with employers. Obtaining an Australian School Based Apprenticeship (ASBA) means that students will have prior experience through VET and will work toward a Certificate 3 in a particular trade.


There are many different pathways through the SACE to suit all students. Some will study full time at school, others may connect with programs or services outside of school. Some examples of these include:

South Australian School of Languages

Daws Road Centre
Hyde Street Programme
