Academic Focus

THS offers a full and comprehensive range of subjects at all levels. Junior secondary students study up to nine subjects during the year. YR11 and YR12 students must select six subjects from a range of options. Most YR13 students only take five, and use their free time to study.

Full information is given in the annual Curriculum Guides, which are available on the Junior School and Senior School web pages.

Senior students and parents need to read these guides carefully. They explain the pre-requisites for each course, opportunities for multi-level study, the process for engaging in distance learning courses, or our CoroNet facility (for video conference classes).
