Senior Studies at Charleville State High School

Charleville State High School has a diverse range of subjects that can be studied in Years 10, 11 and 12, through our staff or distance education and vocational studies. This is our commitment to meeting the learning needs of a diverse student population with different strengths, areas of interest and future aspirations.

YEAR 10

The Year 10 curriculum at State High provides a link between the Junior and Senior school. It is an opportunity for students to experience a greater range of subjects and therefore the potential for greater success in their Senior School studies if they have had authentic learning experiences in a variety of Senior 'preliminary' courses in Year 10.  These preliminary courses start in Semester 2.

Senior Education and Training (SET) Plan

After completing Year 10 your child will be able to choose from a broader range of learning options leading to a Senior Certificate or a Certificate III vocational qualification. During Year 10, students will make choices about their individual pathways through the Senior Phase of Learning. To finalise their learning plans, students and their parent/carer will need to complete a Senior Education and Training (SET) Plan interview.
SET Plan Interviews will take place in the Resource Centre (Library) in early Term 3 each year.

For these interviews, we utilise an internet-based booking system called S.O.B.S. Using this system, parents/carers are able to select the interview time most suited to their needs. Further information will be sent to parents when booking becomes available.

YEAR 11/ 12

All Year 11 and 12 students study an English subject and a Mathematics subject. They also choose four other subjects from a range of Authority subjects and other subjects, as described below. This takes the total number of subjects studied to six.
The Queensland Curriculum & Assessment Authority (QCAA) governs both the Authority and Authority-Registered subjects. In order to be eligible for an Overall Position (OP), students must undertake at least five Authority subjects over two years, thus they may include one Authority-Registered subject in their total of six, and still be OP-eligible.
