Subjects & Programs

LCS has a wide and impressive range of subjects to offer students

LCS provides a wide range of subjects for Senior students.

In year 10 the emphasis is on consolidation in the areas of Literacy and Numeracy while offering students specialised subjects in optional areas. Students choose 3 optional subjects each semester which can include Robotics, Drama, Food Studies, Visual Art, Music, Audio Design, Life Science Extended, Humour & Satire and Small Business. LCS also has a Life Skills program for year 10 students who have a disability and need a modified curriculum that focuses on skills needed for independence and employment.

In year 11 & 12, subjects are chosen for future pathways and LCS offers an extensive range of courses accredited by the Office of Tasmanian Assessment, Standards and Certification Authority (TASC). LCS is also part of a cooperative arrangement with St Patrick's College, Launceston Church Grammar and Scotch Oakburn College. Students wishing to study subjects that are not offered at LCS may study at one of the other schools if subject lines match up.

Students wishing to study VET courses (Vocational, Education and Training) are part of the St Patrick's College VET program.

Participation in sport is encouraged, not only through weekly PE lessons for year 10 students but also in lunchtime activities, school carnivals and interschool sport. For more information about LCS Sport, download our Sporting Opportunities Booklet here
