The Year 10 programme has been re-designed to best provide a springboard into Senior English studies. The programme directly and explicitly engages students with the theory underpinning the Senior Syllabus, including the theoretical language requirements. The content of the course has also been augmented to include more challenging tasks, subject matter and conditions for assessment. The aim is not merely to provide a transition between Middle and Senior School studies, but to actually, in effect, function as a first year of Senior English.
Years 11 and 12
English is offered as an Authority Subject for students in Years 11 and 12, aiming to develop student expertise in using language appropriately and effectively in a variety of social contexts and to increase student appreciation of language and its uses.
English Communication, an Authority Registered subject, gives students the opportunity to increase his or her range of communication skills. This subject is offered to students dependent on numbers.
