Senior Curriculum

The wide choice of elective subjects and HSC courses in our senior curriculum motivates seniors to explore and extend. Lessons come to life with an exciting range of incursions and excursions that make learning exciting and relevant. Our international exchange program offers opportunities for cultural enrichment across the curriculum with visiting native speakers and opportunities to travel enhancing language study.

We offer a broad curriculum in Years 7 and 8 giving all students a taste of the diverse options for further study.

In Years 9 and 10 an extensive range of elective subjects allows students to explore their interests and find their strengths.

Our wide range of HSC subjects for Years 11 and 12 include many extension options.

Prospective students considering entering CCGS in Year 11 should contact the Registrar, Sarah Barker, on + 61 2 4365 8404 to discuss individual subject requirements.
