Year 7 and 8 students study a range of core subjects. As part of our comprehensive language program, Year 7 students choose one language before they start and they study this language throughout Year 8 also.
In Year 9, students study 5 non-elective subjects as well as a number of diverse elective subjects as part of our unique Learning to Learn program.
In Year 9 students enter the modern, recently built Discovery Centre where traditional classroom teaching evolves to a more interactive style of engaged learning, helping students to become independent thinkers.
Year 10 students undertake studies in English, Maths, Science and Humanities and choose six electives. Our new Science Arts and Technology building, the da Vinci Centre is now complete and students are enjoying these wonderful, modern facilities. Year 10 students are offered the opportunity to experience VCE studies at Unit 1 and 2 levels as part of their elective program.
VCE students study English and choose their remaining subjects from an extensive range of units. The Year 11 Handbook has detailed descriptions of subjects offered at VCE level at Brighton Secondary College. Brighton Secondary College's new VCE Centre, complete with up-to-the-minute classrooms, study areas and student retreat area was opened in 2009 and extended in 2013.
Study tours to both France and Japan are available to Brighton Secondary students of those subject areas, and we are fortunate to have students and staff from our sister school Tokoname Japan visit us on alternate years, and vice versa.
Students interested in philanthropy are encouraged to apply to attend a World Challenge tour where students travel to and assist in countries and areas of need. Students work to fundraise for this challenge themselves. Students often hold other fundraisers at the College for local and international philanthropic and worthy causes. We encourage all students to combine their academic coursework with a healthy balance of sporting, cultural, social and extra curricular activities.
