Year 10 Curriculum Overview

Compulsory Subjects
All Aberfoyle Park High School Year 10 students undertake a combination of compulsory and elective subjects.
Year 10 students complete Exploring Identities and Futures, a compulsory SACE Stage 1 subject, and the following compulsory Year 10 Australian Curriculum subjects:

IGNITE students complete the compulsory subjects outlined above, differentiated for gifted learners.  For more information, please follow this link to the APHS IGNITE Program.

Year 10 students select five elective subjects in order of preference (1-5). Full year elective subjects must be selected as two consecutive preferences.

Students planning to study the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme from 2024 should note that the IBDP requires students to study an additional language as a requirement of the course, so choosing to continue studies in either Japanese or Spanish is essential.  Prospective IBDP students are also recommended to choose the Year 10 elective subjects Extension Science, Extension Mathematics and Extension English.  Prospective IBDP students who choose the recommended electives, but who also wish to continue their study of Music will be catered for through an offline program which is individually negotiated at the start of Year 10.  For further information about the IBDP, please go to the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme page of this handbook.
