Academic

At Lytton High the structure of the curriculum aims to produce students with a wide variety of courses to study and the opportunity to empower all learners to be confident and connected in their future pathways.

Year 9 Curriculum

This curriculum offers all students a broad education that makes links within and across learning areas, provides for coherent transition, and opens up pathways to future learning. Lytton has developed a fresh, innovative and exciting curriculum for Year 9 students where:

  • learning is cross curricular, utilising strengths from several areas at once
  • learning and teaching is for the future
  • Maths, English and Science form a base of our core five learning areas. Each course is developed to have strong cross-curricular links that allow students to utilise learning from different areas to enable success.

Students are offered a choice of courses that allow them to engage with their learning. Our Year 9 Course Information Booklet can be viewed here Year 09 Pathways 2019
