Senior Subject Choices for 2018

Senior Course Structure 

In 2019 senior subjects and courses will be delivered in modules of 8 hours per week. Most modules will contain two subjects and be taught by two teachers.

The year will be split in to two semesters (first half and second half of the year). In each semester a senior student will choose three modules, a total of six modules for the year.
Semester 1 Module 1 Module 2 Module 3
Semester 2 Module 4 Module 5 Module 6

When choosing modules you will need to make sure you are covering the subjects you require for the following years schooling or for a future qualification or job.
