The Year 10 program is structured to allow for student acceleration across the 3 years, providing students with the opportunity to study a unit at a level above their year level.

Students choose 4 units for semester 1 and 4 units for semester 2 from the elective subjects listed below. Their choices must include units from at least 6 learning areas.

Each Year 10 student must complete 2 weeks of work experience as part of their English/EAL course.
