Senior Years 10-12

Plenty Campus Ivanhoe Grammar Senior Years

As students enter the Senior Years they are able to select a course of study, which not only caters for their interests, but is also consistent with their abilities. This three-year Senior Years Program allows students to tailor their subjects to meet their needs for current learning and future pathways. 

Year 10 provides a smooth transition into the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE).

In Year 10 all students study a core program of: English, Mathematics, Science, Humanities: Australian and Global Perspectives, Physical Education and Life Matters. In Humanities the subject of Australian and Global Perspectives includes the study of VCE Global Politics Unit 2. In addition, two electives are studied for the year. Students may select from Year 10 electives or from a host of VCE Units 1/2 studies.

For students who choose to follow the VCE path, they complete the Certificate across three years. Individual student programs are designed to meet student needs and abilities. It is possible for Year 11 students to study up to two Unit 3/4 subjects and some Year 12 students take the option of studying a University extension subject.
