The EDGE program will use three key approaches to meet the needs of gifted and talented girls: enrichment, extension and acceleration.

Enrichment will be provided through in-class differentiation in the curriculum as well as selective extraction from mainstream classes. It includes a semester-based withdrawal program that has a Science/Mathematics and English/Humanities focus for students from Reception to Year 10. Students may be withdrawn from regular classes for up to two lessons per week. It also includes an array of extra-curricular clubs, competitions, visits and opportunities provided through our links with old scholars, industry and educational institutes. Each semester, the group may be different, depending on the nature of each student’s talent areas.

Extension groups in specific year levels will allow students to be challenged and stretched. Our current Year 10 SACE Japanese group and our Advanced Jazz tutorials are a fine example, with English and Mathematics groups to come. Many competitions and extra curricular opportunities are also available for girls of all ages.

Acceleration will be used through an individualised approach and after considering the wishes of the student and parents, whether that be a whole/partial grade or subject-specific need.

All gifted and talented students’ academic, psychological and social development will be monitored ensuring a supported, challenging and holistic education.

Our Voice

  • I love the small community and great teachers who care not only about their students’ grades, but also well-being and inclusivity for all.

  • Even though we have to get up early, I love rowing. Competing at the Head of the River made all the hard work worthwhile.

    Sophia, Year 10

  • I really like how when you walk down the main corridor, everyone says hi, including the teachers.

    Emma, Year 8

  • Good results come from hard work, commitment (on both the teacher’s and students’ behalf) and the establishment of positive relationships between the teacher and the students. Mutual understanding and respect are key.
