Here at St Brendan-Shaw College we are constantly seeking the best learning environment for our students. When it comes to private study, we need to be flexible as different students study better in different environments.
St Brendan-Shaw College has always had a proud tradition of excellent academic results from our senior students, along with them leaving school as resilient young adults. As we move into the future of education and all of the changes that it entails, we aim once more to "stay ahead of the game" in all facets of education so our students are not just ready for university or ready for work, but, most importantly, ready for life.
Tenison Woods Senior Secondary Area
Funded completely by College reserves, Stage 1 of an exciting revitalisation of our Tenison Woods block to turn it into a contemporary learning area for our senior students was completed in Term 2 of 2016.
