The Junior School provides a comprehensive education program for Reception to Year 5 students through a wide range of learning experiences in the eight areas of learning. Junior School students have access to the teaching of specialist lessons in the learning areas of Physical Education, Japanese, Science and Performing Arts.
Ocean View College is a candidate school for the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme and we are developing a comprehensive program for our students incorporating both the Standards and Practices of the International Baccalaureate and the DECS SACSA framework. Students explore each of the eight areas of learning through a range of subject offerings, and a holistic teaching approach incorporating the IB Learner Profile and Areas of Interaction. We have high expectations and encourage our learners to take full opportunities/advantage of the programs we offer. We acknowledge and celebrate student success across the Middle School.
The Senior School offers a wide range of curriculum opportunities to meet the needs of individual learners from Year 12 to Year 13. A special feature of our curriculum is our ability to offer subjects at Year 12 through the Federation of Schools. Cooperation between local high schools allows students to select subjects which may not have the numbers to be viable at Ocean View. Students remain in their ‘home’ school for the majority of their subjects, ensuring that the relationships built in the earlier years of their schooling are maintained to support them through their final year. Students in the Senior Years are offered many opportunities for learning beyond the classroom, with VET/TAFE options being widely accessed from Year 10 onwards and with over 80% of our students having achieved VET/TAFE credits toward their SACE at completion.
Young people accessing the Bridges campus are those returning to schooling after some time away. The program offered is therefore extremely flexible and tailored to meet the individual needs of each student. We offer a range of SACE subjects and TAFE modules with a view to having students successfully complete the South Australian Certificate of Education or gain required skills for employment.
