Collie Senior High School (4014)

School Overview

Our school is committed to maintaining a culture which focuses on student's honesty, respect, commitment and aspirations. We take an approach that is inclusive, explicit and supports all students in achieving academic, social and emotional success.

We enjoy a positive reputation, both for the excellent educational opportunities we offer and for our high standards of achievement. Students are encouraged to achieve personal excellence in all aspects of the curriculum and to interact with each other and the wider community in a positive, constructive and socially responsible manner.

The school delivers teaching and learning programs to meet the learning needs of a diverse range of lower school students in Years 7, 8, 9 and 10.

Senior school students in Years 11 and 12 are also supported to pursue university entry through an Australian Tertiary Achievement Rank (ATAR) or Vocational Education and Training (VET) opportunities.

Non-examinable courses cater for students with identified Education Needs and those requiring support and adjustments so that they can better access the curriculum. This is undertaken in partnership with parents through individual student pathway planning.

Our Positive Behaviour Support will strive to maintain a school culture which encourages a high standard of behaviour and performance.

Our staff place strong emphasis on pastoral care for all students and work closely with parents to meet the academic, social and emotional needs of the students.

Trained teaching staff and education assistants play an important role in all aspects of inclusive education for our students. Students identified as having barriers to their learning are catered for firstly through classroom strategies.

The curriculum at our school is diverse and varied. The range of courses offered in the senior school includes a broad range of WACE courses leading to university, further VET training and the workforce. As a result of the implementation of such a broad selection, students have consistently successfully accessed their desired tertiary entrance.

The school also utilises the School of Isolated & Distance Education to further broaden course access and personal skill development around independent learning and on-line learning.

Our school offers a comprehensive music program to those who learn a musical instrument, either through the Department of Education's School of Instrumental Music, or privately.

The use of technology in the classroom is an area of growth with the continued upgrade of essential classroom ICT resources. On-Line Teaching and Learning Systems will continue to emerge as part of the curriculum development enhancing the classroom repertoire.
