Students in Years 9 & 10 study subjects from the eight essential learning areas as described in the New Zealand Curriculum Framework. These areas are: English, The Arts, Health and Physical Education, Learning Languages, Mathematics and Statistics, Science, Social Sciences and Technology.
In addition to the core subjects above, students choose Option subjects. In Year 9 students choose six Optional subjects and each subject is for a half-year, except for Languages which are for the full year and count as two option choices. In Year 10 students choose three Optional subjects and each subject is for the full-year.
Information on courses and assessment for senior students (Years 11 to 13) can be found in the Senior Assessment Guide.
