Students in Year 9 and 10 expand their horizons by participating in a broad range of electives and special programs. Year 9 students continue their studies in English, Mathematics, Science, Humanities, and Health and Physical Education, while also participating in literacy and numeracy lessons, Engage, and Explore sessions focused on careers, pathways, and senior campus transition. Year 9 students also choose six electives from a wide range, as they begin to identify their future pathways.

Year 10 students can design their learning course to suit their own specific subject interests, passions, career goals and pathways. They continue with English, Mathematics, History,

Science and Health and Physical Education, and then choose a range of electives to suit their interests and educational needs. Selected Year 10 students also have access to early start VCE and VET units.
