Courses to suit students of every level.
Basic Skills (Year 6)
Designed for Year 6 English learning, our basic skills course give students the necessary tools to ensure a smooth transition into the demands of high school English.
A course focused on technique learning and introduction to formal analytical writing, it helps students hit the ground running.
Foundations One introduces textual analysis techniques and teaches the basics of how to approach the understanding of every text type: poetry, novels, short stories, images, movies.
A new theme is covered each week to increase student exposure to ideas and different figurative language.
Textual analysis writing structure is taught at this stage.
Foundations Two works on the next layer of understanding and focuses on context. Now that technique understanding is mastered, analysis is done with consideration of personal, social, cultural and historical context.
Essay structure work begins.
Foundations Three teaches how to analyse multiple texts together and find write a full length essay based on multiple short texts or one long text. Each term a new text or poetry collection is studied and the entire essay writing process is practised over and over.
Discursive writing is introduced here in preparation for the New Syllabus.
Designed to prepare year 10 and 11 students for the HSC syllabus, our pre-senior course consists of mock modules which mimic the year 11 and year 12 course requirements:
a thematic study
a comparative study
an analytical study
These are the 3 types of studies done in the HSC and this course goes through how to approach each of these studies.
HSC Advanced Preliminary Course (Y11)
