At Coburg High School, we offer a highly structured curriculum with comprehensive and viable pathways. There are three overarching stages of learning that students progress through:

  • Years 7 & 8Breadth Curriculum: we teach and learn the full range of subjects in the Victorian Curriculum, develop critical and creative thinking skills, build strong ethical and intercultural capabilities, and explore and discover new talents and interests.

  • Years 11 & 12Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE): increasing independence and subject specialisation (some VET available).
