Elective Courses

Elective Courses Year 9-10

Subject Selection

Students will complete three electives in Year 9 and 10.

In 2023, students may choose to study,

  • Three Group A Electives


  • Two Group A Electives and one Group B Elective


Group A Electives

These are NESA Developed Courses. Typically, students will study these courses across Years 9 and 10.


Group B Electives

These are one-year programs, developed at Newington. At the end of Year 9, students will have the option to choose another Group B elective, or they may be able to join a Group A Elective for Year 10.


All electives, from Groups A and B, are linked to content and skills that are key to success in Years 11 and 12.

Group B Electives


Please Note:

It is important to note that classes will only be formed if viable numbers exist, and in some cases class numbers will be capped due to access to specialist facilities.

As a result there is no guarantee that all subjects listed will be offered in Year 9 2023. Whilst every attempt is made to satisfy as many of the boys’ choices as possible, certain subject combinations may not be possible.
