Careers, Information Evenings & Subject Selection 2024

Sunday 13th August 2023

Making informed decisions about subject & career choices

We are entering the season where Year 10-13 students need to consider their current subject options, what they want to study in 2024, what they might want to do as a career, but ultimately, who do they want to be as a person.

When considering the option subjects that they choose at the College we often encourage the students to consider subjects that;

  • challenge them academically 

  • challenge their current skill set,

  • develop their creativity, and 

  • pique their interest.

We will sit down with every student in years 10-13 and ask them about potential career options. We always coach them through their subject choices, ensuring that they have the widest possibilities to get into the courses that they want to study in subsequent years.
