Reading Years K to 6
The systematic and comprehensive phonics program makes sure students can read and spell well.
Using the award winning Reading Freedom workbooks, students cover phonically regular words that can be sounded out as well as sight words which cannot be sounded out such as ‘was’ and ‘said’.
Once the basic reading and comprehension skills are at a good level students are able to move into the English program.

English Years 3 to 6
This program covers reading comprehension and written expression of a variety of text types, grammar, spelling, punctuation and vocabulary development. Success in secondary school is strongly connected to competence in these areas.

Mathematics Years 3 to 6
This program builds knowledge and skills in al number operations, fractions and decimals, space and measurement. There is a strong emphasis on the basic number facts, including the times tables, as students with well-developed number sense find maths much easier. Students learn to solve problems of both a routine and more complicated nature.
A solid foundation in mathematics is essential prior to the commencement of secondary school studies.

Opportunity Class (OC) Program Years 3 to 4
Students sitting this exam in August of Year 4 should enroll in the Advanced English and Mathematics programs when they are in Year 3. Students develop and maintain speed and accuracy in challenging work, including general ability. Exam techniques are also developed. Half of the marks for the OC entry are provided by the student’s primary school, therefore it is important for students to be working at an advanced level right through Years 3 and 4.

Selective Schools Program Years 5 to 6
Students sitting the Selective Schools Test (and other scholarship exams) in March of Year 6 should enrol in the Advanced English and Mathematics programs. As well as covering subject skills at a more sophisticated level, these programs provide opportunities to develop and practice exam techniques to help students to work quickly and effectively.
One third of the marks for Selective School entry are provided by the student’s primary school in October of Year 5, therefore it is important for students to be working at an advanced level right through Year 5.

English Years 7, 8, 9 and 10
Strong English and writing skills are essential across a range of secondary subjects. English remains the only compulsory HSC subject so the continued development and strengthening of these skills throughout secondary school is critical for success in the senior secondary years. The English program covers reading comprehension and written expression of a wide range of text types such as information reports, media texts, poetry and creative narrative. Each year a unit in Essay Writing is presented to all groups. This fundamental writing skill is essential for strong performance in a range of subjects and must be built upon year after year.
Good study habits are encouraged and modelled throughout the course.
