Students in Year 7 have a Home Group teacher who also teaches them for a number of subjects, to help them establish a sense of belonging. Year 7 students, much like Year 8 students will have access to specialist teachers and facilities, such as Tech Studies, Physical Education, Science, Dance and Music. Students in Year 8 have a Home Group teacher who also teaches them for one of their areas of learning. Where possible we aim to have the same Home Group teacher in Year 9 so students can continue building strong relationships with school staff and our community.

The Australian Curriculum describes three cross curriculum capabilities and seven general capabilities that have been embedded throughout the entire Middle Years curriculum. At Charles Campbell College we have a learning focus on Literacy, Numeracy and Critical and Creative Thinking explicitly taught across our learning areas.
