Senior Secondary


Sandgate focuses on delivering a curriculum which meets the needs of its students.  In the senior school, students have a choice of 27 Authority (OP University) subjects and 21 Authority Registered (non-OP vocational) subjects.  Students are required to choose 6 subjects, unless they undertake a school based apprenticeship or traineeship (SAT), where they may drop 1 subject to enable them to complete work placement one day per week.

Year 10-12 1:1 laptop program

The 1:1 student laptop computer program will mean that students in Years 10, 11 and 12 are required to have a laptop to complete school work. This can be in either of the following forms:

  • to be a part of a take home laptop program (school purchased), OR
  • to  bring their own devices (BYOD) - available Year 10 students ONLY.


This program responds to our ever changing global working environment and gives our students the tools and knowhow to allow them to succeed. Today’s high school students are the first to be born into a world that has seen full digital technology as a standard, not a luxury.  As a school, we need to exploit this connectivity to ensure we deliver learning anywhere and anytime. We need to challenge students to engage and learn in ways we have not used before.

Our Goal

Our goal is to free families from the growing technological and financial demands in providing the latest and greatest. Our 1:1 student laptop computer program will provide current technology at a very affordable price, while providing cutting edge learning experiences.
