At Hampton SHS, students in Years 10, 11 and 12 generally begin considering their options and pathways for life beyond school. Whether the student is bound for employment, vocational training or further study, he/she is supported by a Senior School Coordinator, Year Coordinators for each year group and other key support staff whose aim is to monitor each student’s overall well-being, specifically focusing on attendance, behaviour and mental health.
Alongside these pastoral concerns, we also organise a range of activities such as reward excursions, the Senior School Ball and other opportunities for students to enjoy their time at Hampton.
The Western Australian Certificate of Education (WACE) is awarded to senior secondary school students who satisfy its requirements. It is a senior secondary certificate recognised nationally in the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF). Generally, students will complete two years of senior secondary study to achieve the WACE, although the School Curriculum and Standards Authority allows students to meet the WACE requirements over a lifetime.
The WACE is recognised by universities, industry and other training providers.
Achievement of a WACE signifies that a student has successfully met the breadth and depth standard, the achievement standard and English language competence requirements in their senior secondary schooling.
