St Marys Senior High School is an academically comprehensive high school which enrols students in Years 11 and 12 in preparation for the HSC. It has a long-standing charter of increasing the range of educational options available to Stage 6 students in Greater Western Sydney, as well as enhancing their educational outcomes. This is achieved through offering a broad range of senior curricula, which is supported by an ethos of adult learning. Student-teacher relationships are based upon mutual respect and partnership and serve to establish a positive and safe learning environment.
Our student population is diverse in terms of cultural background, educational experience and future aspirations. The common goal fostered by students and staff alike, is a positive commitment to learning and a desire to achieve and continually build upon their personal best. This same ethos underpins our entire school community. As a school community we value inclusiveness and independent student learning as part of the life-long learning experience. We also value the strength of our celebratory school traditions, while embracing innovation, in our teaching practice as a 21st century future-focused learning community.
