Catholic Education Diocese of Parramatta has been carefully considering the structure of our secondary schools in the Mount Druitt, Rooty Hill and Hassall Grove communities.
This follows a review that has spanned more than two years. Our decision-making has been driven by strong aspirations for the young people of Western Sydney.
With this in mind, Loyola Senior High will be renewed to provide even more access to high quality enterprise skills and vocational education and training. Though Loyola will not be closing, the 2018 Year 11 cohort will be the final intake of students into Loyola in its current form. Students in Year 11 in 2018 will continue through to the completion of their Year 12 studies in 2019. At the same time, new students will continue to be enrolled into the Loyola Catholic Trade Training Centre in 2019 and beyond.
Catholic Education Diocese of Parramatta will add to the many opportunities currently available through the Loyola Catholic Trade Training Centre to grow future career options for students. We will build on our strong existing relationships with employers, industry and other groups to provide students with even more real-world, vocational education and training options.
Also in 2019, both St Clare’s Catholic High School Hassall Grove and St Agnes Catholic High School, Rooty Hill will have a Year 11 intake for the first time. This decision, together with a new approach to delivering the very best skills and vocational training for young people through Loyola, is a direct response to the needs of the students in the Mount Druitt, Hassall Grove and Rooty Hill communities.
