Senior School (Year 10-12)

Clare High School Senior School 

Clare High School has a strong commitment to providing our senior students with skills to help them transition successfully into post-school pathways. As students’ progress through senior school their learning will gradually reflect their personal choices made against their future career aspirations, alongside the requirements of the South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE). We offer a wide range of subjects encompassing all curriculum areas, with over 25 different subject options available throughout the senior years.

Our academic performance in our Senior Years (Year 11 and 12) is very strong, with our Year 12 results over the past nine years regularly surpassing the state average in many indicator areas. Approximately 60% of our students elect to undertake post-secondary study at a tertiary institution (in comparison to the state average of 25%). Those who choose alternative pathways are also strongly catered for with National Certification courses available in a range of trade areas, including Automotive and Construction, and a large number of students signing up for School Based Apprenticeships and Traineeships.
