Academic Enrichment & Extension Opportunities


Reading is the main focus of enrichment and extension of knowledge. As discussed in the curriculum sequencing, during Year 12 students are set a minimum of two readings a month and during Year 13, 1 hour a cycle is dedicated to additional reading. The aim is to enrich their understanding of both current topics and widen their experience of the discipline of psychology as a whole.


Where possible, certain students who have shown an interest in studying Psychology at university, will be included in tutorials to discuss areas of interest.


Students in Year 12 are given the opportunity to mentor and support a student in Year 11 in the lead up to their exams.
