Subject Information Booklets

Junior (Year 10) Options

The purpose of this booklet is to give students and parents an outline of what is offered and taught at the year 10 level.

It allows students and parents to follow the courses of study through to the senior school.

From the information within this booklet, and the course description on the college website, students, in consultation with parents and staff, will be able to select their options for the year 10 level.

The overall programme for year 10 students is similar to that of the year 9, with students studying the core subjects of English, mathematics, science, social studies and physical education/health. See the booklet as there are special notes about this option.

Two option subjects are studied for a whole year. Students should choose these two option subjects with the following considerations in mind.

  • An option subject they have enjoyed in year 9 ...
  • An option subject that they may intend taking for the National Certificate of Educational Achievement (NCEA) qualification in year 11
  • An option subject that may help with career aspirations.

For more information, please read the Junior Subject Information Booklet.


Senior (Years 11, 12, 13) Options

The page for each course gives an overview of the course content as well as the NCEA standards included in the course.
