Senior Curriculum

In Years 11 and 12 students study for the Higher School Certificate (HSC), with a broad variety of Shared Course, ATAR, NON-ATAR, Vocational Education & Training (VET) and EVET study options.

Denison College facilitates intra-campus learning for senior students by providing a bus between campuses to enable senior students to move between campuses for classes.
