At Canterbury, we believe success is reaching your full potential. You can only reach your full potential if you are in a place that focuses on wellbeing and extracurricular options as well as academic excellence.
In 2014, 27 per cent of our students received an OP from 1 to 5, and 99 per cent of applying students received a university placement. Our NAPLAN results are consistently well above state and national standard. At Canterbury, our academic record speaks for itself.
Our wellbeing program proves Canterbury College is at the forefront of innovative thinking. We offer a mindfulness and meditation program to students of all ages, calming and focussing the mind, reducing stress and regulating energy levels for optimum learning.
Our Junior School students also have access to our multi-sensory room and our weighted ‘fidget aids’. These are based on the latest research about energy levels of young people and how restriction of their natural energy levels may negatively affect their learning ability. Throughout the college, we also have stand-up desks available to students.
Our pastoral care team and regular year-level retreats, as well as our Spiritual Development classes, also focus on the wellbeing of our students.
Our Arts Academy offers one-on-one tuition, masterclasses with renowned artists, a wide range of performance opportunities and partnerships with tertiary and professional arts companies. It is renowned for its excellent programs, and Canterbury students are sought after due to their performance prowess.
