Junior school

Junior secondary
Junior secondary is a phase of education at Charters Towers High School for students in Years 7, 8 and 9, which ensures the seamless transition between the primary and secondary school phases in education. Junior secondary focuses on age-appropriate education, and support for students’ wellbeing. An overview of the principles and key values guiding Junior Secondary at CTSHS is available below and in the Resource section.
 
Junior Secondary Teachers
Teachers at Charters Towers SHS are committed to providing your child with the best possible education in a safe, caring and supportive environment. Students are encouraged and supported by the dedicated enthusiastic staff to fully engage in all parts of school life and to pursue their personal best effort in every situation.
Our Junior secondary teachers work very hard to provide unique learning environments designed to specifically respond to the needs of young adolescents academically, physically, socially and emotionally throughout Years 7, 8 and 9.
 
Junior secondary learning
We specifically tailor our learning programs to meet the needs and interests of adolescents as they progress through their education. A broad curriculum derived from the Australian Curriculum is offered to cater to the interests and needs of all learners in Junior secondary. Overviews of the intended learnings across year 7-9 broken down by both KLA and term are available below and in the Resource section.
 
Junior Secondary wellbeing and transitions
A distinctive feature of Junior Secondary is the strong emphasis on student welfare, and fostering the essential relationships between home and school in pursuing the best outcomes for students.
 
The natural flow from one year to the next, and the supportive environment we provide, enables students to make a smooth transition from the primary classroom to a more complex and challenging environment of Charters Towers State High School’s Senior School.

Senior subject selections
Subject selections are made after working through the Education plan process that begins in Term 3 Year 7 and culminates in Year 10 with the SET-P Process. Students and their parents should consider the prerequisites of senior subjects during the process to ensure acceptance into these subjects.
