Science is mandatory for all students from Year 7 to Year 10.

Science 7-10 provides a way of inquiring about the world around us. It explores evidence and investigates ways to discover, develop and produce solutions to real-world problems. Science emphasises the skills for working scientifically, as well as critical and creative thinking to address scientific issues.

Year 9 and 10 students can also chose to study Marine Studies. This practical-based course develops a student’s capacity to design, produce, evaluate, use and sustainably manage marine and water-related environments.

In Years 11 and 12, students can choose up the three different science disciplines, including:

  • Biology
  • Chemistry
  • Physics.

In Year 12, students who are studying at least one other science subject may also choose to study Science Extension.
