Over Years 7 to 10, students develop their understanding of microscopic and atomic structures; how systems at a range of scales are shaped by flows of energy and matter and interactions due to forces, and develop the ability to quantify changes and relative amounts.


In Year 7, students explore the diversity of life on Earth and continue to develop their understanding of the role of classification in ordering and organising information. They use and develop models such as food chains, food webs and the water cycle to represent and analyse the flow of energy and matter through ecosystems and explore the impact of changing components within these systems.


They consider the interaction between multiple forces when explaining changes in an object’s motion. They explore the notion of renewable and non-renewable resources and consider how this classification depends on the timescale considered.


They investigate relationships in the Earth, sun, moon system and use models to predict and explain events. Students make accurate measurements and control variables to analyse relationships between system components and explore and explain these relationships through increasingly complex representations.


Topics covered include:
  • Chemical World: Chemistry Part 1

  • Living World: Biology Part 1

  • Physical World: Physics Part 1

  • Earth and Space: Earth Science Part 1





The Mathematics Years 7 to Year 10 Syllabus forms part of the continuum of mathematics learning from Year 1 to Year 10. To ensure coherence and continuity, we teach the Mathematics Syllabus in accordance with the Board of Studies and High School class rooms.


Mathematics is used to identify, describe and apply patterns and relationships. It provides a precise means of communication and is a powerful tool for solving problems both within and beyond mathematics. Mathematical ideas are constantly developing, and mathematics is integral to scientific and technological advances in many fields of endeavour. Digital technologies provide access to new tools for continuing 

mathematical exploration and invention. In addition to its practical applications, the study of mathematics is a valuable pursuit in its own right, providing opportunities for originality, challenge and leisure. 


Mathematics in Years 7–10 focuses on developing increasingly sophisticated and refined mathematical understanding, fluency, communication, logical reasoning, analytical thought and problem-solving skills. These capabilities enable students to respond to familiar and unfamiliar situations by employing strategies to make informed decisions and solve problems relevant to their further education and everyday lives.


Topics covered include:
  • Binomial Products
  • Linear Equations
  • Simple Quadratic Equations
  • Indices
  • Surds
  • Surface Area and Volumes
  • Geometry
  • Factorisation Techniques
  • Trigonometry
  • Coordinate Geometry
  • Simultaneous Equations



The aim of English in Years 7 to 10 is to enable students to use, understand, appreciate, reflect on and enjoy the English language in a variety of texts and to shape meaning in ways that are imaginative, interpretive, critical and powerful.



Through responding to and composing a wide range of texts in context and through close study of texts, students will develop skills, knowledge and understanding in order to:

  • speak, listen, read, write, view and represent 

  • use language and communicate appropriately and effectively

  • think in ways that are imaginative, interpretive and critical

  • express themselves and their relationships with others and the world

  • learn and reflect on their learning through their study of English.


Topics covered include:

  • Texts and Representations

  • Critical Analysis and Film Studies

  • Deconstructing Poetry

  • Drama
