Our Senior School:
Academic Excellence and Exceptional Graduate Pathways
Our Senior School sets the standard for excellence.
Emerging as young leaders with limitless horizons, our graduates depart Investigator College with the knowledge, skills, capabilities and academic results that will guide and shape successful futures.
Maintaining a reputation for academic excellence and a pioneering spirit, Investigator College graduates are equipped to step confidently into future study, future vocations and future careers.
Taking full advantage of our dedicated, state-of-the-art Senior School precinct, Investigator College offers a full complement of subjects, opportunities and pathways to suit each and every learner as they complete their Secondary education.
Understanding that post-schooling destinations and aspirations differ for each individual, we work alongside each and every one of our Senior students, coaching and guiding them as they complete their Secondary education to ensure that they are able to pursue their desired future vocation.
As our Senior students complete their Secondary education – and throughout our entire College – we are committed to ensuring that each individual learner has the fullest opportunity to become, and be, their very best self.
Each student enrolled in our Senior School enjoys and benefits from:
Our Senior School class sizes are small, and concentrated around specific subject areas, ensuring that each learner receives time and space to focus on their studies, and to access support from expert teaching and learning staff. We invest substantially in the post-school future of each of our Senior students, and work continually to ensure they are equipped and empowered to achieve excellent results.
Guiding and shaping the leaders and community advocates of the next generation, our Senior School program combines academic rigour with the further development of key skills and qualities that set our students apart, and set them on course for enduring and meaningful lifelong learning.
We view our Senior students as the natural student leaders within our College Community, and utilise their position as role models for our younger students to encourage the development of key character strengths that serve to further equip our graduates for success as they move into the next phase of learning, work and life.
Focus on Positive Education and Wellbeing
At Investigator College, we understand that navigating the final years of Secondary School can be challenging. Our focus on Positive Education helps to ensure that each student has access to a range of services, strategies and initiatives that are designed to support and promote holistic student wellbeing.
From opportunities to engage in mindfulness and exercise activities, to community-oriented programs that promote relationships and connection, we offer a teaching and learning environment that prioritises happy and healthy students.
Expert Teaching Staff
Each of our Senior School teaching staff are experienced educators, with a breadth and depth of subject-specific expertise that provides a top-tier teaching and learning experience for our Year 10, 11 and 12 students.
We believe our Senior School offers the very best educational experience on the Fleurieu Peninsula.
As our students prepare to graduate, and to pursue their chosen post-school pathways, our teaching and learning is characterised by:
Extensive subject offerings, including specialised ATAR (university) pathway subjects and a range of Vocational Education and Training (VET) offerings.
Access to state-of-the-art learning facilities, campus grounds and teaching environments to promote deep engagement with SACE-level studies.
Focus on, and support for, Student Wellbeing and Positive Education as learners navigate their final years of Secondary schooling.
Consistently high standard of academic achievement, with a reputation for excellent ATAR results, and a proud history of highly successful graduates.
