Year 10 Curriculum

Year 10 Curriculum

Year 10 sees students begin to define their pathways into their two-year VCE Studies program.

Year 10 is the year in which students start to define their pathways into their two-year VCE Studies program. Some boys will already have a clear sense of where their interests and strengths are leading them, but many are still keen to keep their options open, exploring a number of possibilities and challenging themselves.

All year 10 boys continue to study the core subjects of English, Mathematics, Science, History (one semester), Personal Health and Physical Education, and the addition of Ethics & World Views and Learning for Life (Careers). 

In addition to the core curriculum the boys will expand and continue individualising their learning experience by choosing from a suite of 27 elective subjects in the learning areas of the Applied Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, Languages and Hospitality. Please note the running of elective subjects will be dependent on demand, timetabling and staffing matrices.

This is the year when students step up to the increased rigour and challenge provided by courses at this level in preparation for their final VCE years.
