Year 10 Curriculum2024-04-11T14:47:27+10:00

Year 10 is viewed as a preparatory year leading into the summative years of grade 11 and 12. Students commence subjects that lead into the QCAA senior subjects gaining exposure to the skills and knowledge required. It is also during this year that students make decisions on their Senior School Pathways, whether that be preparing to go to university (Uni Ready pathway), preparing to move into the workforce (Work Ready Pathway) or an alternative (Customised Pathway).

At Redlands College, year 10 concludes at the end of term 3. In term 4, students commence their Senior School Pathway: Unit 1 QCAA General and/or Essential subjects and any certificates offered through our school RTO. Students in grade 10 may study either 5 or 6 curriculum subjects and choose from the following subjects.
