Course Confirmation Day - 27 January 2014 important information for Course Confirmation


Onslow College has a commitment to:
  •     catering for individual needs within a broad and balanced curriculum
  •     meeting student preferences
  •     supporting students to achieve their academic potential

Course Selection Guidelines

  •     Individual students express preferences and then programmes will be constructed through consultation between students, parents, teachers and deans.
  •     Future pathways should be considered when planning courses.
  •     Multi-level programmes may be chosen.
  •     Entry to subjects depends on the stated entry requirements being met. Students who do not meet entry requirements can apply to the Head of Department for special consideration.
  •     Deans and the careers adviser are available to assist with the building up of a programme.
  •     Full time courses of study must be undertaken by all students:
Year 11
    * English and Mathematics
    * Science (unless exempted by Dean)
    * plus three other subjects

Year 12
    * English
    * plus equivalent of four or five full year subjects

Year 13
    * Equivalent of five or six full year subjects

Final confirmation of courses takes place during Course Confirmation Day in late January. Failure to attend course confirmation may put the place in a subject at risk.
Availability of subjects will depend on staffing and student numbers. If numbers for a subject are too small, the subject may be combined with another, be timetabled for fewer than four hours per week, be taught through correspondence or out of school hours, or withdrawn.
