Fixed Focus Classes

Providing students with more choice in how their time at school is spent.

From year 9 onwards, our students can personalize their timetable by selecting one or more of our fixed focus classes.

.These must be undertaken alongside compulsory subjects. Fixed focus classes change every semester to boost skill development. Some of the classes on offer include:

They also engage in practical experience by learning techniques to produce their own content.
