Our Senior School’s optimal size of around 750 students from Year 7 to Year 12 enables our teachers to know and care for each girl, providing her with a learning pathway that is rigorous and personalised, so she is both challenged and supported to maximise her learning potential.
As a leader in girls’ education, Roseville College delivers a well-rounded and rigorous education, offering our students a breadth of academic and co-curricular opportunities designed to challenge each girl.
Through our focus on academic excellence in teaching, in learning and in innovative curriculum, we seek to inspire each girl to strive for her best. As a result, our students attain consistently strong results in the HSC, and university applicants from Roseville College achieve impressively high rates of pre-HSC, early admission offers.
In addition, Roseville College is the only North Shore school to offer the prestigious, world-recognised Cambridge International Courses in Years 9 and 10, giving students an opportunity to extend themselves academically while laying a strong foundation for the senior years and the HSC.
Our personalised learning approach means that each girl’s learning is geared to maximise her potential.
Through the Inclusive Learning program, high ability students are extended in their learning. They may be streamed in core subject areas and can join acceleration programs from Year 8. A quality, differentiated curriculum combined with the ability to stream core subject areas inspires students of high ability to thrive within a personally rewarding and rigorous learning environment.
For students who may require additional support, our Inclusive Learning department work in collaboration with classroom teachers and support staff to assist students in various areas of the curriculum.
After school academic programs
Students in Years 7-10 have access to the After School Academic Program (ASAP) which operates Monday to Thursday, until 4:30pm. Supported by our teachers, the program provides students with a dedicated time to focus on key learning areas outside the regular timetable, as they complete homework and assessments.
Students in Years 11 and 12 benefit from a dedicated space, the Senior Studies Centre, for their after-school program. Available to students until 6:00pm, Monday to Thursday, this is a quiet place for study, supported by recent Roseville graduates who tutor and mentor the students in a variety of HSC subjects.
The joy of choice.
Roseville College’s culture of participation encourages students to try new things. Our co-curricular program provides a wide range of opportunities for girls from Kindergarten to Year 12 to participate in extracurricular activities that cater for a diverse range of talents and interests.
A balanced education enriches each girl’s school experience and provides her with diversity and personal challenge, while ‘feeding her curiosity’.
We offer an extensive sports program that encourages students of all abilities to participate in and enjoy sport. Our curriculum includes PE (physical education) classes where students participate in a variety of sports designed to build their skills, sportsmanship and fitness.
Our Senior students compete in IGSA Sport (Independent Girls’ Schools Association Sport) on Saturdays, which provides inter-school sporting opportunities as well as a pathway to representative competition at the state and national level.
We are proud of the high levels of participation in our sports programs, be that for recreation or as elite sportswomen. Our culture of participation encourages students to take part in physical activity and supports their physical fitness.
Outdoor education and service learning
Our outdoor education program is designed to give our girls unique opportunities to experience nature while building resilience and character. In Senior School, students participate in our camp program where they engage in practical and active learning in the natural environment. ‘Learning away’ is a wonderful opportunity for our students to have fun while consolidating friendships and forging deeper connections with their peers.
With an emphasis on reconciliation and awareness, the College’s Indigenous immersion program provides Senior girls in Years 10 – 11 with the invaluable opportunity to learn from traditional owners in Central Australia, in partnership with Red Earth. Learning from Elders living on their traditional lands, students work in partnership with a local community and learn about their vision for sustainable homelands.
