Year 10 curriculum

Building on the foundations laid in Years 7 to 9, Year 10 aims to address the needs of our young men as they prepare for their final years of secondary schooling.

Year 10 is a preparatory year, with subjects presented (where possible) as precursors to what can be expected in senior studies. All subjects are assessed and reported under a criteria-based approach.

Core subjects

  • English
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • Modern Languages (Japanese, Mandarin, Spanish or French)
  • History
  • Religious Education.

Elective subjects

Each Year 10 student studies the core subjects and can choose two electives from an extensive list which includes:
  • Advanced Science
  • Agricultural Science
  • Commerce
  • Design
  • Drama 
  • Engineering
  • Film, Television and New Media
  • Geography
  • Information Technology
  • Music
  • Philosophy and Critical Reasoning
  • Physical Education
  • Visual Art.
A range of school events and resources assist Year 10 students and their parents to establish the Senior Educational and Training (SET) Plan, ahead of study in Years 11 and 12. Establishing a balanced subject array that will excite and engage each learner, cognisant of his interests, abilities and post-school preferences, is the over-arching goal of the process.
