English Studies


Board Developed Course (ATAR)

This course is designed for students who are looking to improve their literary skills and use English in a more ‘real world’ context. This Board Developed Course helps students refine their skills and knowledge in English and consolidate their literacy skills, for a transition to employment or vocational training after school.

The English Studies Course supports students in developing proficiency in English to enhance their personal, social, and vocational lives. It offers students a comprehensive language experience designed to further develop their skills in reading, writing, listening, speaking, viewing, and representing. English Studies will address the needs of students following a vocational pathway.


Students who wish to obtain an ATAR must take the optional external HSC Examination for this course.


Further information is available on the NESA website.


If a student qualifies, the English Life Skills Course is available in mainstream classes. More information on Life Skills courses can be found here.
