Learning in Year 7 & 8

In Years 7 & 8, students undertake a prescribed course of study. All students follow a balanced core curriculum that places emphasis on the study of all Key Learning Areas. Each student undertakes a different elective subject each term. ​

The focus of learning in Years 7 & 8 centres around consolidating skills taught in primary school and innovating these to help students navigate the greater academic complexity required at secondary school.
