The Sciences

At Cathedral, we motivate and encourage students to explore how they can apply their mathematical and scientific understanding creatively and efficiently. 


Learning The Sciences is an essential part of any young person’s education, creating opportunities for students to develop not just core subject knowledge but the skills of collaboration, critical thinking, creativity and problem solving – all crucial for action in our personal, social and economic lives. At Cathedral we motivate and encourage students to explore how they can apply their mathematical and scientific understanding creatively and efficiently. Students each complete units in Biology, Physics, Earth Science and Chemistry

Senior students continue to access the power of mathematical and scientific reasoning with a high expectation that all students engage with Mathematics in their VCE. At Year Ten, students study mathematics at their VCE pathway level. This links in closely with Cathedral’s cross-disciplinary curriculum of STEAM subjects and our partnerships with tertiary education providers.
