Senior curriculum

Study in Year 11 and 12

The Northern Beaches Secondary College (NBSC) offers a full range of study areas in the senior years, matching individual abilities, interests and goals. NBSC has enrolments in Years 11 and 12 at all campuses. A full range of Board Developed Courses (BDCs), VET Frameworks, Board Endorsed Courses (BECs) and Extension courses are offered.

An integral part of the Northern Beaches Secondary College (NBSC) is the sharing of senior curriculum across the five campuses:

  • Students can tailor an individual senior curriculum which suits their particular needs
  • Students can access more than 100 HSC courses across five campuses
  • College bus provides transport between campuses
  • Students can access TAFE, including courses onsite at the Freshwater Senior Campus.

These courses are referred to as cross campus courses and students are required to travel to various campuses for their selected course. Download the 2019 Cross Campus Bus Timetable (PDF 62KB) for more information.

In assisting students to select appropriate course for senior studies, the NBSC produces the senior studies guide. The guide contains:

  • Details of Higher School Certificate (HSC) requirements
  • List of courses offered
  • Description of all subjects on offer
  • Career Planning Guide
  • Offers suggestions on subject combinations compatible with broad career areas and pathways.
