Recommended Background

Satisfactory completion of Year 9 English.

Course Description

Year 10 English will be delivered using the Australian Curriculum and build on skills, knowledge and understandings in listening, reading, viewing, speaking, writing and creating. Learning in English is cumulative and builds on concepts, skills and processes developed in earlier years, and teachers will continue to revisit and strengthen these as needed.

Year 10 students create a range of texts for a variety of imagined and real-world contexts. Students study and respond to a variety of classic and contemporary texts, including novel, film, drama, poetry and media texts. Students build on their understandings of texts in context, and use critical theory to analyse texts. Students strengthen skills in creating texts for a wide range of audiences and purposes, and for a range of contexts.

Note: Students may incur additional costs for excursions and/or performances.


Year 10 Students are assessed according to the English Achievement Standards outlined in the Australian Curriculum, with A-E Grades used for reporting. This includes assessment of achievement in listening, reading, viewing, speaking, writing and creating.
