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 & 8—Breadth 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 9 & 10—Pathways Curriculum: we engage in an even wider ranging curriculum, while beginning to specialise in particular subject areas.
- Years 11 & 12—Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE): increasing independence and subject specialisation (some VET available).
The following document is a summary of the curriculum offered at Coburg High School from Years 7 to 12:
