The teachers at William Ruthven Secondary College take great pride in their role and are incredibly proactive in keeping up-to-date with the best possible teaching methods. They research and read widely, regularly consult with curriculum experts and visit high performing schools to constantly develop new ways to help their students thrive and achieve.

Inquiry Learning

Years 7 to 9 students take part in Inquiry projects to develop their capacity to gather and interpret information, solve problems, use effective thinking and develop questioning skills.

This learning is supported by knowledge gained in core subjects such as Maths, English, Art, Technology, Science and Humanities, enabling students to see how all areas of learning are connected.

Senior Years

Years 11 and 12 students will be guided to select the program — VCE, VET or VCAL — that best suits their skills, talents, interests and requirements for further study, training or employment.

Specialty classes

Students can develop deeper understanding and skills in subjects they have a strong interest in, from Arts, Design and Technology and Health and Physical Education, through to Humanities and Science.
