Aranmore Catholic College provides a strong educational foundation for all its students both academically, physically and spiritually. Students in Years 7, 8 & 9 receive a general education across all of the Learning Areas. The emphasis is on building general skills and for preparing students for Senior School. 

Students in the Senior School are being prepared for leaving school.  Students in the Senior School at Aranmore can choose courses that lead directly to University entrance, TAFE or employment.  Year 10 introduces students to Senior School where they can sample courses available in Years 11 and 12 to demonstrate their ability and to make informed choices for the continuation of their senior studies into those years.

Year 11 and Year 12 students choose subjects to study from a diverse list available at the College. All students study Religion & Life, English/English as an additional Language or Dialect and Mathematics. 

Students will then be able to choose 3 other subjects based on their Post school destinations. Aranmore also offers an extensive Vocational and Education program in which students mix traditional schooling, Work Experience and formal study at a Registered Training Organisation (RTO). Students on this pathway can earn Certificate I, II or III.

Upper School Handbook - Available Courses

The Upper School Studies Handbook provides information regarding the courses on offer at Aranmore Catholic College for Year 11 next year. It outlines the courses available on an ATAR and General pathway and those that are on offer as part of our Vocational Education and Training programs.

Assisting your child in planning their future is a challenging task. The courses offered by Aranmore Catholic College facilitates students with opportunities to choose their pathway based upon their interests and ability. These courses provide excellent grounding for your child’s future endeavours whether that be University, further studies at a State Training Provider or the workplace.

In planning their future it is essential that they utilise the information and resources that are available to them, so that they are making fully informed decisions regarding their course selections. Students are advised to:

•  Read the handbook carefully, looking at all of the courses and options available;

•  Talk with their parents;

•  Seek advice from their course teachers, Heads of Learning Area and the Careers Counsellor;

•  Research further study options such as university and State Training Provider websites and investigate apprenticeships and traineeships and the world of work.

It is hoped that the careful, well planned selection of courses will mean that students enjoy and benefit from studying at a Senior Secondary level.

By selecting the right course combinations, meeting the requirements regarding Literacy and Numeracy competency and achieving the required standard in courses throughout Year 11 and Year 12 students will meet the requirements to obtain a Western Australia Certificate of Education (WACE).
