In Year 7 all students follow a common course of study and stay in Home Groups for all classes. The Curriculum follows the design laid out in the Victorian Curriculum to run over a 2 year period.

The Curriculum for Year 7 has been designed to provide all students with a solid foundation across the 8 Essential Learning Areas: English, Mathematics, Science, Health & Physical Education, Language, Humanities, Arts and Design/Technology.

Special Programs

Students in the Year 7 SEAL (Select Entry Accelerated Learning) class will be accelerated through English, Maths, Humanities, Japanese and Science. Entry to this program is by testing and interview. For further information please click the link below.
At Year 7, Bass Coast College offer a SELP (Select Entry Literacy Program) that seeks to improve the literacy of students who have been identified by their Grade 6 teacher as having skills and understandings in this area below the state standard. 
Literacy assistance is also available for any student outside of the SELP class who needs support in developing their general literacy skills.
For further information about SELP and other literacy interventions available for Year 7 students, please contact Bass Coast College’s Literacy Coordinator, Heather McKinnon. 
The MYLNS initiative (Middle Years Literacy and Numeracy Support), is a state government funded initiative that, provides intensive teaching suppport to government secondary school students who are at risk of finishing school wihtout the literacy and numeracy skills they need for future work and study.
This initiative seeks to support and build on the work that schools are already doing to improve literacy and numeracy outcomes for all students, by providing additonal teaching support to prioritised studetns as part of a whole school approach.

Students who are priorities have been identified through Naplan results and teacher judgement. At BCC, in 2023, students in Years 8, 9 and 10, identified to receive MYLNS support, will have a second specialist teacher in their English and Maths classes. Students in the MYLNS classes, in Years 8, will also receive an extra literacy and Numeracy class a week to build on skills to support Maths capabilities. 


TLI (Tutor Learning Initiative) is a DET initiative aimed at providing support to students whose learning growth was impacted from working remotely due to COVID. Tutors are either fully registered teachers or preservice teachers. Tutoring occurs through supporting students 1:1, in small groups and in class support.
