Curriculum Outline

Subjects in the Middle School are arranged into Core and Specialist subjects.


Core subjects offered are mandatory for all students in Year 7 to 9 to complete the following:
• English, EAL or Accelerated English
• Mathematics or Accelerated Mathematics
• Science or Accelerated Science

Specialist Subjects

At Year 7, 8 and 9 students are assigned to specialist subjects which are run for one semester only. Specialist subjects are designed for students to have the opportunity to be exposed to a broad range of Art and Technology subjects and encourage the exploration of new skills, talents and interests in preparation for subject selection in the Senior School.

All Year 8 students continue with their language learned in Year 7 for the full school year.

At Year 9 students may elect to continue with LOTE however, this will run throughout the year.

All Year 9 students also choose an Enrichment Elective each semester which is linked with Year 9 Core subjects.

Note: Some specialist subjects have associated material costs. Enrolment in these subjects cannot be confirmed without payment.
