What are you doing for year 11 & 12?

We have courses that will help you get into university or training or to gain an apprenticeship or a job.

One thing is for certain. North Lake is different. There are no bells and you’re treated as an adult. Mature aged students are very welcome and you don’t need to live nearby – our students come to us from all over the state.

Fast Track & Intensive English Centre

North Lake doesn’t just cater for Year 11 and 12 students. The Intensive English Centre (IEC) is for students aged 16-21 who are new to Australia and want to learn standardised English in preparation for Years 11 and 12, training, university and employment. Fremantle Fast Track, located in central Fremantle, enjoys great success working with students who require Year 10 equivalence or a pathway to employment.

What North Lake students say…

"... the thing about my experience at North Lake is that I felt much freer to be myself. I felt like I was subjected to less pressure and less judgment and as a result I seemed to work better.” (Yann dux 2011, bass player for WAMI award wining Koi Child)
“When I arrived in Australia from China my English wasn’t good I couldn’t find a school, I was sad because the opportunity to study means everything to me. After a long time of searching I found North Lake Senior Campus. Because North Lake gave me an opportunity I worked hard to prove I was a good student. I had nice teachers who helped me and I want to thank all the teachers here.” (Louie dux 2013, ATAR of 99.3, Bachelor of Science at UWA with majors in Mechanical Engineering and Mathematics)
“Being at North Lake has been a great pleasure. I’ve totally changed since I got here. It’s not just the study, I’ve learned respect and seeing everyone as equal. I really like mixing with people from lots of different cultures – you learn different and better ways of doing things and you learn bits of their languages too. It was a good decision to come to North Lake and a very good decision to do Industrial Studies.” (Abraham, top Industrial Studies student 2015, heavy duty mechanical apprentice)
