Academic Extension

In Years 7 and 8 (Stage 4), 2 to 3 periods a week will be allocated for cross-discipline projects. Each term will have a different focus where topics are challenging and involve all elements of the Quality Teaching Framework.

In Stage 5, students who have completed Stage 4 of a Special Program will have the opportunity to:

  • continue in their special program choice, through the study of electives in drama performance, special music or art and culture or art and media, ceramics and visual design
  • accelerate in Design and Technology, completing the HSC in this subject while still in Year 11
  • study 'Beyond Visible'. This elective is mainly for outstanding mathematics and science students
  • accelerate in a chosen language

Academically able students who accelerate and complete one HSC subject while in Year 11, have the opportunity to study an undergraduate university subject while in Year 12.
