Secondary Schooling starts in Year 7 at Rivergum, like the rest of Australia and in keeping with the Australian Curriculum. 

Secondary commenced in 2017 at Rivergum, with our first cohort of Year 8s, and we are about to embark on our first year of offering Year 12.

We teach in line with the Australian Curriculum at Rivergum and are fully registered with the SACE Board.
