Curriculum

A broad variety of subjects is offered at each year level in the Senior School, giving students the opportunity to choose a course of study that caters for her individual interests and talents.

In Year 10 students enjoy a range of Australian Curriculum subjects including English, Science, Maths and Maths 10A, Health and Physical Education and Humanities subjects. A range of options such as Art, Drama, Languages and Music are also available. All students in Year 10 complete the SACE Stage 1 Personal Learning Plan (PLP), a subject which affords students opportunities to plan a futures pathway based upon their learning needs. Students also complete a week of work experience and an outdoor education expedition.

Seymour College offers two certification pathways in Years 11 and 12.

  • the South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE)
  • the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP)

Students can also undertake Vocational Education and Training (VET) options to augment their studies.

The SACE is an internationally recognised certificate which gives students the flexibility of choosing a course of study appropriate to their interests and abilities. Students complete a range of subjects including literacy and numeracy options.

The IBDP is a two-year educational programme where students must complete a set range of subjects. This is an international programme recognised by Universities globally.

On completion of Year 12, students are able to select a variety of post-school options or employment. The majority of students at Seymour College choose tertiary study following their Senior School studies.
