The College attracts funding under the National Smarter Schools' Partnership--Low SES and is part of the CEDP system of schools.
In 2010 the College was invited by the CEDP to join a pilot program entitled the Numeracy Now Project that adopted the Inquiry and Knowledge Building Cycle (Timperley, 2008) to inform teacher learning.
Participation in the Numeracy Now Project initially involved the Principal and School Mathematics Leader participating in a six-day professional learning course that focused on instructional leadership in mathematics; development and implementation of a school action plan that was supported by CEDP teaching educators; assessment of students using the Mathematics Assessment Interview (MAI) (Clarke et al.
Key to the success of the Numeracy Now Project was collaboration with an academic partner, and support from CEDP in adopting a leadership triad (team) model that included the College Principal, a teaching educator from the CEDP and one of the College's lead teachers.
The four CEDP secondary schools involved in the Numeracy Now Project in 2010 were breaking new ground, along with the research partner, as the earlier research had not ventured into a secondary setting before this project.
