in Year 7 and 8 there is a dedicated emphasis on core disciplines while allowing our students to explore and develop their interests in other learning others. The school maintains a focus on literacy and numeracy; critical and independent thinking; practical experiences and creative expression.
We also believe in allowing our students to explore their interests and challenge their curiosity in these years before specialising in subjects in later schooling. Elective units are offered on a semesterised basis to allow us to maintain small class sizes and diverse choice.
The core curriculum units are year long studies and build the framework for senior study.
In Year 9 and 10 the students build on their effective classroom and study routines and knowledge necessary for success in senior years. They also have the choice of a range of electives that allow them to further specialise in areas of interest. (see our academic pathways for a list of these electives.)
