Senior School

Years 11 and 12


The needs of the individual are at the centre of the Senior Curriculum. Downlands aims to help students strive for the highest level of achievement in learning of which they are capable. While excellence can be seen as an absolute, there is a relative level at which individuals should be challenged to perform excellently with their respective talents. We encourage all students to attain this level. Serious study is stressed, as well as critical thinking and openness to religious values.

The typical student workload for students in Years 11 and 12 at Downlands College is six subjects. All students must enrol in a Religious Education, English and Mathematics subject. In addition to studying these subjects, students at Downlands College are required to select three other subjects.
