Al Amanah College senior high school prides on the quality of teaching and learning it delivers and the recent, past student achievement in the HSC examinations. Student-teacher interactions are based on mutual respect and ongoing partnership and serve to establish a positive and safe learning environment with a focus on independent learning. The senior school offers over 20 NESA, NSW developed courses across the 5 faculties. Students in the Years 11 and 12 enjoy smaller class size hence, teachers are better able to tailor design learning experiences for individual students/small groups and identify individualised learning needs of their students to facilitate high calibre of achievement in their HSC.
The senior school values the strength of our college ethos and traditions, while embracing innovation in our teaching practice as a 21st century future-focused learning community. Information communications technology, enquiry based learning via research and synthesis of information and trends is encouraged in the learning process. Students are encouraged to build resilience, problem solving and collaboration skills which not only provide means to excel in their HSC courses but also provide life-long skills necessary for post-secondary school studies and the workplace environment of the future.
Graduates of the senior school are pursuing careers and or studies in the disciplines of Medicine, Engineering, Accounting, Finance, Health, Education, Information Technology and Social Services.
