Year 11 Curriculum Overview

At Prendiville Catholic College there are four Senior School pathways that provide students with a variety of avenues to success beyond Year 12.  The four pathway combination aims to provide each student with the best opportunity to achieve their greatest potential, fulfil interests and realise personal goals.

The four Senior School learning pathways are:

  • The ATAR pathway or direct university pathway is for those students who are aiming for a university education beyond Prendiville and will study a full list of ATAR courses.
  • The LINKed pathway provides students with an alternative pathway to Edith Cowan University.  The pathway is a partnership between Prendiville Catholic College and Edith Cowan College.
  • The GENERAL pathway is a General course pathway for those students who aspire to enter the workforce, TAFE or University via indirect entry.
  • The FLEXed pathway is a freshly designed pathway for those students who seek senior secondary education in a flexible learning environment.  This pathway allows students to complete a General pathway through completion of WACE in a school based enterprise setting.

Students in Year 11 and 12 at Prendiville Catholic College have the option of choosing either 5 or 6 courses. These courses run 5 times a week in a 30 period week.  In choosing their courses students should ensure this is done in accordance with all WACE Guidelines and future post school destinations requirements. This information is available on the Subject Selection Home Page under WACE Eligibility and Post School Destinations. 

Parents and students must realise that Religion and either English or Literature remain compulsory and choosing 5 courses will only allow them to choose three more courses. Many students may choose to study 6 courses, particularly if they wish to keep more options open for tertiary education and provide assistance in ensuring all WACE requirements are met.  Five courses will enable achievement of the WACE but will not provide the safety net that some may gain from 6 courses.

Students choosing to undertake 5 courses will need to choose Senior Independent Learning as their sixth course.  Please see the course description for further details.
