Camberwell High School Senior Years

The final years of our students’ schooling are critical for determining their future pathways. At Camberwell High School students are provided with a wide range of subjects to help them realise their potential. 37 VCE subjects are on offer in concert with a range of external subject options. These options include languages other than English, Vocational Educational Training in Schools (VETis), School Based Apprenticeships as well as specialist training programs like the Lightmare Valhalla course for year 10 students. Further information about the programs on offer at Camberwell High School is available in the Senior School Handbook. The handbook details all available subjects in years 10, 11 and 12 at Camberwell High School and outlines other courses offered outside the school for the consideration of students and parents.

Camberwell High School focuses intently on the development of our students as learners and as people. In addition to the broad academic curriculum on offer, our senior students are encouraged to participate widely in the performing arts and sporting competitions to ensure their experience in VCE is enriched through a variety of complimentary and diverse activities. Our students participate in local and state forums on a range of issues, help local community organisations and have the opportunity to develop their leadership capabilities through the school’s SRC, sporting carnivals, school productions and chorales. Our School Captains meet regularly with the Principal, Jill Laughlin to plan activities, provide feedback on a range of ideas, and create further opportunities for student involvement at Camberwell High School.

Throughout the senior years, our students’ progress and career development are closely monitored to help them make informed choices about their subjects and university courses. The school has an outstanding careers program that enables students to visit a number of different Tertiary institutions including the University of Melbourne, RMIT, Monash University and Deakin University. Students are counselled annually on their courses and future pathways by our experienced Careers Officers. We also have a partnership with Swinburne University which provides the school with Scholarships for high achieving students, and disadvantaged students. Students wishing to pursue vocational avenues are adeptly supported by the school’s VET Coordinator. Importantly, Camberwell High School provides a VCAL program for students seeking an alternate qualification to the VCE. Our commitment to our students is reflected in our strong retention rates from year 7 through to year 12.

Over recent years Camberwell High School has enjoyed excellent VCE results well above the state average. In 2011 alone 25% of our students achieved an ATAR over 90 and 44% achieved an ATAR over 80. These results are underpinned by the efforts of our experienced teaching staff who support students inside and outside the classroom to achieve their personal best. This support is further enhanced by the Senior School team who oversee the Senior School Program. In addition to the care extended by classroom teachers and Senior School staff, the school also offers a Personal Development Program.

It is essential that all students leave school enthused by, and confident in, the use of mathematics. All students undertake mathematics study in Year 10, and there are multiple pathways for divergent student interests and abilities. Students all complete Semester 1 of Core Mathematics and then can choose to complete Semester 2 in either Mathematical Methods or General Mathematics, depending on their interest and skills.

The Personal development program involves the coordinated effort and contribution of staff, as well as student councils and captains, to provide an environment in which every student is challenged to reach their best potential. The program combines large and small group activities. Students come together twice weekly to discuss issues relevant to their age group, whether it be bullying, cyber safety, future careers or community responsibilities. These sessions enable students to better understand their role as responsible citizens in the wider community.
