The Pasadena curriculum is built around all students having a range of opportunities to
learn with an emphasis on the basics and a strong focus on high levels of achievement to nurture personal

Importance is placed on developing the whole child considering their social, emotional
and cultural needs in addition to academic achievement. Our curriculum provides a comprehensive inquiry based
approach that personalises learning for the individual student by ensuring they see relevance, significance and
connection in their learning.

Modern Learning Environment equipment and resources are utilised to give students a choice in where and how they
work related to the task they are completing. Students are also given the option of bringing their own device
which enables them to research, communicate and share their learning anytime, anywhere within in the school day.
