Students take control of their own learning and shape their future

23 Jun 2017

College Year 10 student Jennifer Cooper understands the importance of senior subject selection in shaping her future and shares her ideas and aspirations with campus advisors, mentors and family.

Hastings Secondary College works collaboratively with students and their families to determine the best options to suit each student, with clear links to post-school pathways of education, training and employment.

At Hastings Secondary College we provide students the breadth of subject choice and the opportunity to select courses available at more than one campus.

Greater range means more subjects to choose from which in turn means more students get the subject choices they want. Only at Hastings Secondary College will you see the breadth of subject choice available to senior students.

Periods are carefully allocated for cross-campus courses to maximise learning time. Cross-campus students start or finish the school day at the campus where their chosen cross-campus course takes place.

Hastings Secondary College offers multiple pathways from secondary education to employment and students can choose three paths:

1.    A comprehensive group of subjects for university entrance with an ATAR;

2.    A broad group of subjects based on Vocational Education and Training (VET) at school and beyond; and

3.    A combination of subjects that include VET courses which still means students are eligible for an ATAR.

Hastings Secondary College has established strong partnerships with numerous Universities, TAFE and Midcoast Connect all of which support our college students in attaining what lies beyond school and securing their future.

Senior years at Hastings Secondary College campuses are exciting, important and challenging. In these years students can expect opportunities to further grow and develop their gifts and talents as leaders and role models both at school and in their community.
