In each semester, students engage in the subjects of English, Mathematics, Science, History, Geography, Health and Physical Education, The Arts and Sport, with continued emphasis on numeracy and literacy. Further, students study a semester of Language (Chinese and Spanish).

Students also study the Learning Area of Humanities (Economics & Business, Civics & Citizenship, Design and Technologies: Industrial Technology & Design, Design and Technologies: Food & Culture).
In Year 9, students’ course of study is made up of two parts: the Core and the Electives. All are enrolled in the Core subjects which consist of English, Science, Mathematics, Health and Physical Education, and History. In addition, Year 9 students choose three elective subjects from the following options:
Design & Technologies: Food & Textiles
Design & Technologies: Industrial Technology & Design
Economics and Business
English as Additional Language or Dialect
(NB: The Principal reserves the right to discontinue an elective subject if there are insufficient numbers to form a class of viable size)
Students who began Spanish Immersion, Chinese Acceleration or Mathematics and Engineering Acceleration Programs in Year 7 will continue these subjects.
If a student wishes to withdraw from one of these programs a letter must be received by the school from the parent.
