Senior School curriculum

A vibrant community of learners

Churchie’s Senior School is a vibrant learning community of approximately 1300 students from Years 7 to 12. The Senior School curriculum offers students many opportunities for students to develop as self-directed, metacognitive and collaborative learners.

Years 7 to 10 curriculum

In Years 7 to 10, students undertake the Australian Curriculum.

As part of Churchie’s commitment to a broad liberal education, students in Years 7 to 9 are required to study one subject in the arts. As we prepare students to be confident global citizens, students undertake a language until the end of Year 9, whereupon they may choose to continue their international language study into the senior years.

The core subjects in Year 10 prepare students for studies in either the Queensland Certificate of Education/ATAR or the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme pathway.

Students are supported by the School’s acclaimed study skills programme: A Learner’s Toolkit, to provide a strong foundation for their future learning.

Years 11 and 12 curriculum

For Years 11 and 12, Churchie offers three distinct pathways, where the best pathway for each student is selected in collaboration with parents:

  • Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE)
  • International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (DP)
  • Vocational education and training (VET).

Holistic development

The delivery of the Senior School programme is based on Churchie’s four tenets: academic excellence, spiritual awareness, personal growth and service.

A broad range of subject choices is offered to students so they can explore and expand their interests and abilities. Each boy is encouraged to develop, integrate and balance the physical, social, intellectual, emotional, moral, ethical, aesthetic and spiritual dimensions of the Senior School.

Dedicated academic staff and students meet in air-conditioned, new-generation learning spaces throughout the Senior School. These technology-rich facilities allow for individual learning, small-group work and whole-class collaboration.

Students access specifically designed teaching areas in the Hayward Midson building for the Arts, Design Technology and Engineering; the Stanley and May Smith Science Centre; and the Business Studies Centre.
