At Hallett Cove School we recognise that Year 10 is a year of transition for students as they move from the Middle Years into the Senior School.  With this in mind our curriculum has been designed to ensure that students study a ‘core’ range of subjects intended to support them in developing the skills, knowledge and understanding necessary to make appropriate future subject and career choices as defined by the Australian Curriculum.  In addition students have greater flexibility in choosing ‘elective’ subjects that enable them to personalise their learning experience at Hallett Cove School.


At Year 10 students study the following core subjects:

§  Mathematics – full year

§  English – full year

§  Science – full year

§  Humanities and Social Sciences – full year

§  Personal Learning Plan (PLP) – compulsory SACE subject

§  Physical Education (core) – one semester

§  Special Interest Volleyball – full year (option)

§  Special Interest Soccer – full year (option) 

Year 10 students are also able to choose three elective subjects from the list below:

§  Japanese

§  Home Economics

§  Technical Studies

§  Art/Performing Art

§  Physical Education (elective)

§  STEM 

During Year 10 students take part in a range of activities including:

§  Work Experience

§  Ski Trip
