Transition Year - Year 10


In many respects Year 10 operates as a transition year from the Junior Secondary to the Senior Secondary phase of school education, with a wider variety of the subjects offered in Semester 2, forming an introduction to courses of study available in Years 11 and 12.
Its rationale lies in the notion that students are more likely to experience greater success in their Senior Secondary phase of learning if they have had authentic learning experiences in a variety of Senior 'preparatory' courses in Semester 2, Year 10.

While the Year 10 curriculum is guided by the KLA syllabuses and ACARA, the focus is on preparing students for the QSA Senior School Certificate.

In Year 10 students are required to develop their Senior Education and Training (SET) Plan, which details the student’s specific goals for Year 11 & 12 and beyond. The formation of this plan is integral to ensuring a student’s subject choices in Years 11 & 12 match their educational and early career goals. To this end, an interview is conducted with each student and their parents to finalize the plan.
