Years 7 - 12
Life and learning go hand in hand at St Hilda’s. First, we want girls to make friends and to participate in a range of cocurricular activities either during the school day or out of school hours. When they are feeling ‘at home’ and connected with the school community, it is time to think more seriously about our academic program and how they can make the most of their learning journey.
We connect girls with their passions: Our range of subjects is extensive and we believe that this breadth enables girls to study something they really love doing. We increase their choice of subjects as they move through the School. Find out more about each Year group byselecting the following links:

We challenge girls in their learning: Our students are hardworking and we set our standards high. We want them to be challenged, to question ideas, to think for themselves, to be confident and to be empowered as a result of their learning experience. We want our students to leave school thinking about solutions rather than problems and obstacles.
We support girls in their learning : Learning something new whether it is a cocurricular or academic requires small steps before girls can become experts. Our teachers know this and our teaching is carefully scaffolded to lead them to become proficient and experienced. We offer support though:
- differentiated programs which include extension and extra help
- the Tutoring Centre for students from Years 7 to 12
- extended opening hours for the Library and Technology Centre
- online access thorough our learning portal, Studywiz
- our pastoral care, where students from Years 7 to 12 have a tutor and a Head of Year, in addition to their subject teachers
We move girls seamlessly through school: Our programs are Kindergarten to Year 12; our Junior School is Kindergarten to Year 6 and our Senior School is Year 7 to 12. Without a middle school, our academic progress is smooth, with Year 12 teachers overseeing the curriculum design and teaching Year 7 students.
