Scarlet - Years 10, 11 and 12 Team
The Scarlet Team is a multi-age team consisting of students in Years 10, 11 and 12.
In Year 10 students study a core course of subjects that consists of English, Mathematics, Science and Inquiry. In addition, all students are involved in Excel classes, where their academic goals are negotiable but must be based on Personal Learning Plans.
In these classes students have the opportunity to undertake a wide range of study options including literacy extension classes, visual and performing arts productions, humanities subjects and PE and sports classes.
During Excel sessions Year 10 students also have the opportunity to take Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) and Vocational Education and Training (VET) subjects, some of which mean they have the opportunity to attend classes at other educational providers in the local area.
This option has proven very popular and a large proportion of students begin the VCE with some experience of its demands and expectations.
In Years 11 and 12 students undertake a full load of post-compulsory subjects, mostly consisting of VCE subjects with some students choosing to augment their course load with VET subjects.
Fitzroy High School offers a large range of subjects, in addition some students choose to take subjects at our partner school, Collingwood College, the Centre for Adult Education (CAE), as well as local VET providers.
Fitzroy High School students can currently choose from more than 20 subjects at both Years 11 and 12. We offer all of the VCE maths and science subjects as well as a broad range of humanities and arts subjects.
In addition, students can choose from 40 VET subjects as well as additional VCE subjects offered at CAE. Students also attend regular Advisory sessions where they work closely with a teacher and small groups of students.
In these sessions students discuss their academic and pastoral progress, work on their career development plans and take part in activities such as yoga and self-defence classes.
