Getting ready for senior learning

Are you starting senior learning at Jesmond Senior Campus next year? 

Jesmond Senior Campus has a wide range of opportunities to offer all students, and choosing subjects, pathways, support programs and extra-curricular activities are all an important part of senior schooling. 

To assist students make the best individual choices for this important stage, we have designed a subject selection and transition package that is comprehensive in both opportunity and support. 

You can also read through the 2024 Year 11 Orientation Handbook (this will be updated later in the year for 2025 students).
