Staffed by specialist Year 7 teachers, our unique and well-established programme offers high quality, differentiated teaching and learning and develops an awareness of Secondary School expectations, whilst at the same time providing students the support and security to establish close bonds within their social groups and a larger year level.

Do you offer non-academic pathways?

Absolutely. At Bunbury Cathedral Grammar School, we offer a vibrant and exciting Vocational Education Programme. Our students have the opportunity to study ATAR and General courses alongside working to achieve Certificate courses. This is supported with opportunities for work placement in the areas of interest for each student. We acknowledge that each student is different and has their own aspirations and interests; therefore, we work with each individual to plan a personalised academic programme for their two senior years.
