Senior School

Kambala provides a broad educational experience that challenges the intellectual, creative, reflective, emotional, physical, social and spiritual capacities of each individual.

The Senior School encompasses Years 7 to 12 with an enrolment of approximately 550. Students in Years 7 and 8 follow a compulsory curriculum largely determined by Board of Studies requirements. In Years 9 and 10 they have the opportunity to elect subjects. In Years 11 and 12 students have the choice of two pathways: the NSW Higher School Certificate or the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program.

In 2014 over 42% of Kambala’s students gained an ATAR for entry to university of 90 or over. However, the strength and quality of a Kambala education is not limited to the public successes of our talented students. All students at Kambala are important and all are encouraged to participate and to do their best. While the pursuit of excellence is important, we encourage students to believe in the principle that “you have succeeded if you have achieved your personal best”.

Programs such as CASaK (Community, Adventure and Service at Kambala) for Year 9 students, build on Kambala’s welbeing program and involve a year of personal growth and reflection for each student. It promotes awareness of the individual’s place in her community, builds knowledge of local and global communities, challenges each student to learn beyond the classroom and engages her in helping others by serving the community.
