Years 7–10 Syllabuses

The Board of Studies, Teaching and Educational Standards NSW is responsible for setting the core curriculum in New South Wales by developing syllabuses for Kindergarten to Year 12

Schools in New South Wales use the 7–10 syllabuses listed below. Click a syllabus to view it in full.

The Board has developed new NSW K–10 syllabuses for English, Mathematics, Science (including Science and Technology K–6) and History, incorporating the Australian curriculum. Implementation of the new syllabuses is phased from 2014.

The new syllabuses are available in an interactive format via the NSW syllabuses for the Australian curriculum website, which allows filtering, searching and viewing by stage and subject. Secondary teachers will also find a range of support materials, including the online programming tool, Program Builder, to assist with implementation of the new syllabuses.

The information for English, Mathematics, Science and History in the Years 7–10 Syllabus Course Descriptions has been updated to reflect the requirements and content of the new syllabuses.

Information about other syllabuses in the Years 7–10 Syllabus Course Descriptions is unchanged.

All schools are required to deliver programs of study that comply with the requirements of Board syllabuses. For schools that are accredited the courses must also satisfy the prescribed hours for the Record of School Achievement and be based on the outcomes of Board syllabuses.

Beyond the prescribed study hours schools have discretion to offer courses beyond the Board's curriculum. If individual schools choose to teach material not approved or endorsed by the Board, it must be made clear to students that this material is additional to and not part of the relevant Board syllabus and will not be tested in any public examination conducted by the Board. Students should understand that such material, therefore, would not be considered relevant in any response they write for Higher School Certificate examinations. Such material is not to be set as part of school-based assessment of Board syllabuses that contributes to the Record of School Achievement and Higher School Certificate assessment.

The teaching of any religious, ideological or philosophical beliefs that are not in conflict with these constraints and are not otherwise contrary to the requirements of the Education Act is a matter for the school and the school community.
