Why a Girls’ only Campus?

The girls campus is designed accommodate 400 girls from years 8 to 12.

Research both here and overseas has confirmed that girls’ educational success can be improved through single sex education.

The research has shown that girls working in an environment without the distraction of boys can be more successful. There are also more opportunities for girls to take up leadership roles and to engage in curriculum that explores the experiences of being female and understand better the challenges that face women and girls in all societies.

The commitment to maintaining a girls’ only campus was made when the local high schools, one of which was Gepps Cross Girls’ High School, amalgamated to form the Roma Mitchell Secondary College.

Curriculum overview and frameworks…

The curriculum for Roma Mitchell Secondary College is based on two key curriculum frameworks. They are:

  • The Australian Curriculum
  • The International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program (IBMYP)

Transition to High School through Middle Schooling

To support year 8 and 9 students to be successful and happy in their transition to High School, we have a middle school structure that minimises the number of teachers students have in their first two years.

The students’ Care Group teacher will also teach them for at least two other subjects. This facilitates more effective communication between teachers and families and establishes strong relationships to support learning.

We deliver the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program (IBMYP) for all Years 8-10 students in our Girls’ and Co-Educational campuses.

This is a rigorous academic curriculum framework being used in a growing number of public and private schools across Australia and internationally. Our teaching and learning programs are developed with reference to the IBMYP and the Australian curriculum materials.

Students are also given every opportunity to pursue their passions and talents through our extra programs:

As part of Roma Mitchell Secondary College we are implementing the Australian Curriculum and the International Baccalaureate for the middle years.

There is a Gifted and Talented program that is part of the program in place for the whole college.

Some girls are involved in the Specialist Sport Program and some Aboriginal girls are participating in the South Australian Aboriginal Sports Training Academy program.

There is additional support for students who have English as an Additional Language and Dialect and for students with a Negotiated Education Plan (NEP) at every year level.
