Years 11 and 12
Year 11 and 12 are the final years of Christ Church Grammar School. They are years in which a student is permitted to choose every one of his subjects. This freedom of choice allows students to choose courses that will be most meaningful to them both in Years 11 and 12, and in their further study and careers. The choices can be difficult at times, so it is important to make them with careful consideration of the options.
Selections are made in consultation with a boy’s parents/guardians, tutor, teachers, Heads of House, the Career Counsellor and the Studies Office. Students are advised to explore options by exploring curriculum and post-secondary websites.
The information on these website is supplemented by the subject selection documents, which are available for download on ‘Subject Selection’ page.
Number of Subjects
A student will normally undertake six subjects in Year 11 and five or six in Year 12. The subjects studied in Year 12 are usually the same subjects that were studied in Year 11, with an increased level of difficulty. Students are permitted to select different subject in Year 12 to those studied in Year 11, but it is recommended that this is done only if necessary. Only in exceptional circumstances will a student in Year 11 be permitted to study fewer than six subjects, or a student in Year 12 study fewer than five subjects. All requests to undertake fewer than six subjects in Year 11 or five in Year 12 need to be made to the student’s Head of House.
The Western Australian Certificate of Education (WACE) will be issued to all students who meet the requirements of the certificate. The requirements of WACE can be found at www.scsa.wa.edu.au.
Students will also be issued with a statement of results, which outlines the courses that have been completed during Year 11 and 12, and the results that have been attained. Further information is provided at the website above.
