We maintain the highest of standards

in relation to individual scholarship and work habits


The Academic Staff at Sheldon College share a genuine and agreed commitment to ensuring that each student is afforded every opportunity to achieve individual academic excellence. 

Our strong academic reputation and standing is an achievement that the entire Sheldon College community holds with immense pride. Fundamental to each teacher’s practice is the knowledge that all students have the capacity for high achievement and success.

Each member of Sheldon College is a learner, whether they are part of our teaching team or the student body. At the school level, research-validated studies tell us, unequivocally, the most important contributor to improved student achievement is the effectiveness of the teacher. Our students share both the right to and the privilege of having teachers who are considered to be experts in their respective fields, who possess the drive and energy to continuously refine their instructional strategies and practices, and who demand nothing but the best from their students.

We will always maintain the highest of standards in relation to individual scholarship and work habits. It will be those students who possess these attributes who will be best positioned to take the most advantage of the many opportunities their future will most certainly provide.
