Year 10 Subject Selection Process and Information for Stage 6

The process for Stage 6 subject selection commences this term.

The significance of appropriate subject selection for study in Stage 6 is of great importance, as it directly leads to the awarding of the Higher School Certificate.

To that end, we aim to provide a clear, thorough and supportive process in the lead up to these selections, so that students may make informed decisions about their courses of study for their senior years. We advise students to select subjects in which there is the greatest aptitude, interest and ability, in order to achieve the best possible result and the most satisfaction.

Information will be delivered via the Wellbeing periods that are scheduled every Wednesday Week A Period 1. This Wednesday, 11 May all Year 10 students completed their Allwell Testing in Periods 1-4. Heads of Department presentations will run in Weeks 4, 6 and 8, to assist students’ decision making.

This term, Year 10 students also complete their Term 2 assessment tasks. This is an important period for feedback. Semester 1 results will be closely reviewed in conjunction with Career Profiling and Allwell testing results. Students’ achievement levels in these will influence which courses they will be eligible to select.

Subject Information Booklet and Course Requirements Booklet

Below are two documents which are also available on the College Website:

  • Subject Information Booklet comprehensive guide to policies, course prerequisites and course content.

>>> Click here to view the Subject Information Booklet Stage 6.

  • Course Requirements Booklet – criteria for course eligibility and enrolment.

>>> Click here to view the Course Requirements Booklet Stage 6 Year 11 2023.

These booklets should be read in conjunction with all of the opportunities for discussion and advice available to each and every boy. They will also be posted in a secure site with the Head of Department videos, which will be released later this term.

Students will not be asked to submit their initial selections until early Term 3, after the Parent/Teacher Interviews.

The College uses an online system for the students to nominate their subject selections for Stage 6.  

Students will receive an email with a link and a password to access  the system in mid-June. Students should complete their subject selections online, print the confirmation and submit this in hard copy form, via the box outside Ms Lamonica’s office on Level 1 by Thursday, 28 July.
