Tenison Woods Area

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
Tenison Woods block has a contemporary learning area for our senior students, which was completed in 2016. This common area is a designated only senior secondary area where Years 11 & 12 students can study and engage with their peers in a contemporary learning environment.

The next stages of the project include extending the common area, larger classrooms and a breakout space and will be completed as reserves become available or funding is provided.

Science & Library Areas

Science Breakout, Library and Undercover Common Areas
Our Senior Students currently have opportunities for quiet study in the library or some more relaxed study in the Science Breakout Area. These areas have been designed to provide maximum comfort for students in a group environment or for individual study.

Canteen Area

Canteen Dual Purpose - Cafeteria & Senior Secondary Study Space
Our cafeteria area has the dual purpose of:

  1. Providing all students access to a comfortable area to have recess and lunch.
  2. A flexible study area for our senior secondary students. The recent addition of sliding doors, couches, benches and USB charging stations means our Year 11 and 12 students now have the opportunity to study in a variety of ways - as small study groups or as individuals - with the added ability to charge their devices and have excellent connection to the internet.
