Science is mandatory for all students from Year 7 to Year 10.

Science 7-10 provides a way of inquiring about the world around us. It explores evidence and investigates ways to discover, develop and produce solutions to real-world problems. Science emphasises the skills for working scientifically, as well as critical and creative thinking to address scientific issues.

In Years 11 and 12, students can choose from different science disciplines, including:

  • Biology
  • Chemistry
  • Earth and Environmental Science
  • Investigating Science
  • Physics.

In Year 12, students who are studying at least one other science subject may also choose to study Science Extension.

At Richmond High School we are also fortunate enough to offer to our Year 11 and Year 12 students: Marine Studies.

We also offer some unique electives for our Stage 5 students: iSTEM, Marine & Aquaculture Studies.

Special programs and activities offered:

  • University of New South Wales science competition
