Curriculum

The curriculum has been extensively reviewed and restructured to ensure the fundamental learning needs of all students are met. The college has a strong focus on literacy and numeracy and offers Years 7–10 students a wide range of learning experiences to ensure their interests are met and they are prepared for their studies in Years 11-12.

As part of their studies, students are also able to undertake a sports or business elective. These specialist programs are geared towards students wishing to pursue pathways in either the sports or business. Both programs are supported by community partners and give students authentic learning opportunities and real life experiences.

Year 11 and 12

All VCE classes run for three periods per week except English, which runs for four periods per week. The range of VCE units offered can be found in the Later Years Student handbook.

So as to provide VCE students with a greater specialist range of science and mathematics subjects, the college has a share arrangement with Glenroy College. A broad range of VET subjects are also shared between our VET cluster of schools. Transport is provided for students who move between schools to participate in these classes

VCAL is also offered.
