The short answer is anyone. We pride ourselves on being the only Senior Campus north of the river to offer mature aged students the opportunity to study Years 11 and 12, so if you are 16 or 96 you are welcome to study at Cyril Jackson Senior Campus.
Absolutely not. We have a wide range of students on campus, some have attended some of Perth best private schools, some have been schooled at home or are international students and some simply haven’t found the right fit with a school before CJSC, our university style environment, flexible timetable and variety of courses and programs on offer mean we have the ability to offer at lot more to our students.
Of course, we offer a wide selection of courses including ATAR. So if you have been home schooled and are looking to complete ATAR courses we can help find a solution to best suit your needs in a relaxed, mature environment.
Yes. While there are now other means of acquiring university entrance, we believe that the completion of at least two ATAR courses is excellent preparation for further academic study, giving you the best start at university. Many courses also have prerequisites, and we offer these Year 12 courses for you.
A Senior Campus offers compulsory and post-compulsory students the opportunity to complete Year 11 and 12 study, in a mature learning environment. The timetable is designed to be flexible and work around the students to help them complete all the courses they wish. A wide variety of courses and programs are offered, including ATAR, General, Foundation and VET courses.
We use the term mature learning environment a lot, we are very proud of it on campus. We don’t use a school bell, our students don’t have a uniform and we are on first name basis with our teachers. We help our students to learn to take control and responsibility for their own education, with our guidance and support, getting them ready for further education, training or employment.
We actually don’t have a bullying issue at Cyril Jackson. This is something we are extremely proud of. Our unique environment is powerful and has resulted in our students approaching situation from a mature stance and as such has stamped out any bullying issues. Having said that should any isolated situations arise, we have a ZERO tolerance policy, as outlined in our school handbook and all matters will be dealt with appropriately.
Yes we do run a range of courses under the iLearn program that are based online, these include ATAR English, Economics and Modern History, call us to find out more information.
