Academic Programme

The curriculum at St. Cuthbert’s College is future focussed with an emphasis on ensuring students have an opportunity to experience a wide range of subjects. The subjects offered are broad in Years 7-10 and become increasingly specialised as students find their passions whether it be in the arts, humanities, languages or sciences. Our curriculum caters for all students with opportunities for the girls to learn skills as they grow and develop.

The curriculum at Year 7-10 focusses on ensuring students develop literacy and numeracy skills as well as developing critical and caring thinking, problem solving and ensuring students are resilient and well prepared as they move into the examination years (11-13).

Starting in Year 7 girls can take some courses of their own choosing, progressing through to Year 13 when girls determine all the subjects they wish to study. Girls learn from specialist teachers in all areas of the curriculum, who impart their expertise and passion for their subject.

Alongside academic courses our students also participate in the HUB programme, which is designed to prepare our girls for the rigours of everyday life after their time at the College. In Years 7-10, classes have an emphasis on religious education and ethics, study skills, digital citizenship, mindfulness and career and course planning. In Years 11-13, the programme is focused on maintaining healthy minds and bodies, seeing the world through a different lens with ethics and philosophy guest speakers, developing financial literacy, preparing students for leadership in the College and providing an overview of a range of tertiary study and career options.
