In the Senior Years 11 and 12 there is a wide range of general education and Dual Accredited Vocational Education courses, leading to further study at University, TAFE or direct entry into the workforce. The wide variety of courses enables students to achieve a sound general education, develop valuable communication, problem solving and interpersonal skills and to pursue, if they wish, sporting and cultural interests.
We also offer exciting vocational study options that are relevant, interesting, practical and include the possibility of combining school, TAFE and even part time work.
At Cromer Campus we expect our senior students to perform. The school is proud of outstanding HSC results obtained year after year. Our students mature and progress in an environment which encourages responsibility and self discipline and which values and caters for a wide range of interests and abilities.
Most students choose to complete their Higher School Certificate (HSC) in two years, however some students follow a flexible pathway which allows them to accumulate the HSC over a number of years (up to five).
The HSC program of study is divided into Preliminary and HSC courses, with the HSC examination and assessment based on the HSC course component.

Year 12 is a busy time for students as they study for the Higher School Certificate and make plans for life after school.
A range of online resources is available to help students and parents understand the HSC and prepare for assessment and examinations.
- HSC online and HSC how it works are useful websites for parents and students.
- Year 12 students can set up their personal profile on NSW students online and access support materials including the HSC exam timetable and answers to frequently asked questions about the HSC.
- Students can prepare for the final exams by looking at past HSC exam papers.

This year it's more important than ever for students to balance commitments between their school, social and family life.
