Frogmore (Years 10 to 12)
Our senior school, ‘Frogmore’, is named after the signature Edwardian homestead in the Senior Years precinct, the site of the Principal's Administration.
The provision of state-of-the-art specialist facilities, including our world-class Science and Environmental Studies Centre, the refurbished senior library with extended opening hours (8am-6pm Mon-Thurs), and extensive IT facilities continues to provide access to magnificent educational opportunities for our young men and women in their senior years.
Expertise in particular subject areas is the hallmark of the classroom experience in this sector of the school. Students have access to staff active in research and development within their subject associations at a State and National level. The provision of study support beyond the classroom ensures that the senior years precinct, with its ‘borderless’ classroom setting, is a thriving community of learners at all hours of the day and night.
Throughout their schooling Mentone Grammar students develop capabilities in their learning across the curriculum, in co-curricular programs and in their lives outside school. These capabilities encompass skills, behaviours and dispositions that students develop and apply to content knowledge and that support them in becoming successful learners, confident and creative individuals and active and informed citizens.
Students can reach their full educational potential only when they are happy, healthy and safe. In Frogmore, students are placed in House groups with a House Co-ordinator and a mentor to care for their physical and mental wellbeing. Students participate in a wide range of House activities, co-curricular programs and sport which allows them to become active members within the school community.
By Year 10, students have begun to focus more clearly on areas of particular interest to them and by the end of Year 10 students are generally clearer about the pathways they wish to take in the VCE. The Year 10 Learning Program at Mentone Grammar allows students to explore personal interests and develop skills, knowledge and understanding in increasingly sophisticated ways and provides opportunities for students to continue sequential development of learning that they have undertaken in Year 9.
Further information on the Year 10 Learning Program is available here.
All Year 11 and 12 students undertake the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE). The VCE is the certificate that the majority of students in Victoria receive on satisfactory completion of their secondary education. The VCE provides diverse pathways to further study or training at university or TAFE and to employment.
