Girls and boys process stimuli in quite different ways and there is significant educational research stating that they learn differently too. With this in mind Pittwater House has developed a curriculum focused on engaging young girls' minds in a fun and appropriate way.
Girls are educated in single-sex classes until Year 8, enabling students to continue their learning in an environment proven to produce the best academic results and foster strong personal development.
From Year 9, students begin a gradual integration to co-educational classes. In Years 9 and 10 elective subjects are taught in co-educational classrooms, whilst the foundation elements of Mathematics, English and Sciences remain single sex. In Years 11 and 12 all classes are fully co-educational so that students are prepared for university and life beyond.
At Pittwater House we recognise that intellectual development is only one area of development required for young ladies. As such our students are also provided with physical, emotional, psychological, social and spiritual development.
Through this well-round approach each girl is able to discover her own unique talent.
