The college has a fully inclusive curriculum which is designed to serve our community and provide opportunities for all to flourish. We recognise the context of our community and the intent is to equip all students with the cultural capital and essential knowledge to enable them to access their next steps into further and/or higher education, employment or training.
The curriculum at Christ’s College is broad and ambitious. It provides opportunities to develop knowledge, skills and understanding in curriculum areas as well as reading, citizenship and personal welfare and development.
