Subjects

These booklets are designed to provide information about courses that currently make up the Sacred Heart Girls’ College curriculum from Year 10 to Year 13.
In choosing subject options, students are advised to consult with Vertical Form Teachers, Deans, Heads of Faculty or individual teachers; The Careers Advisor – Mrs Mustchin, or the Guidance Counsellor – Ms Payne.

The College also recommends that parents take an active part in helping their daughter to make wise subject choices based on the latest information that is available.
The Careers Service computer programme is also available through the College’s computer network and students should consult the Careers’ Advisor or Librarian for more information about this service. A conversation with your daughter’s teachers is usually a good starting point, but parents are free to contact any member of staff to discuss a programme of study that best suits your daughter’s individual needs.

Choosing a programme of study

Every effort is made to ensure that as many students as possible are able to study a programme of their choice. It is a priority of the school to offer a continuity of courses and to structure the school timetable to meet student needs. However, subjects which do not attract sufficient students may not be able to run, or may have to be offered with reduced teacher contact hours.

Study through Distance Learning may also be an option. This option will only be considered if the student concerned has mature self-management skills. This guide will help you decide which subjects to take next school year.

Step 1:

Work out what subjects you enjoy Which subjects do I like doing now?
Which subjects am I interested in doing next year that I haven’t already studied?
What do I like doing outside school eg, playing music, helping people, thinking creatively?
Which subjects include these activities?

Step 2:

Work out what subjects you are good at?
Which subjects am I strongest in?
What subjects do others say I am good at?
