Appointments can be made from the pool at any time for commencements within the 2020 school year.
Belridge SESC is a Secondary Education Support Centre that focuses on achieving the best outcome for each individual student with emphasis on Individual Education Planning linked to the Australian Curriculum, ASDAN and Accredited Senior School courses and programs. In 2020 Belridge SESC expects to continue to cater for in excess of 115 secondary aged students from Years 7 to 12.
The ultimate goal for all students is to become life-long learners through the provision of the highest quality educational opportunities and they are encouraged to achieve to the very best of their individual abilities. Successful independent living, career development and transition from school to work or alternative pathways beyond school are the desired outcomes for all students.
Students are provided with programs in an educationally enhancing and stimulating environment. Middle school secondary school students participate in a range of educational programs to enhance their social, emotional and academic growth and well-being. For our senior school cohort, a significant proportion of learning takes place in the local and wider community. All senior school students participate in work experience type programs with enterprise and vocational education being the lynchpin that drives the upper school curriculum to best prepare our students for life beyond school.
