Students in Year 7 are introduced to the eight key learning areas that they will study until Year 10.
Year 7 to Year 10 focuses on eight key learning areas:
- human society and its environment
- personal development, health & physical education
- creative arts
Within these key learning areas there are courses and elective subjects.
Mandatory Courses in Years 7-10 (PDF 245KB) are studied by all students in NSW public schools and are set by the Board of Studies.
Students choose from a range of elective courses that we offer depending on teacher expertise and the number of students interested in that subject. Information on elective courses is available in the Board of Studies syllabus course descriptions (PDF 163 KB).
The School Certificate is no longer being awarded. Eligible students who leave school prior to receiving their Higher School Certificate will receive the NSW Record of School Achievement.
