We have two fantastic 'free play' Playgroups at both our Ulverstone and Burnie campus. Each run throughout each term of the School year.  Playgroup provides an important stepping-stone for younger children to begin their educational journey and is a wonderful way for parents to learn more about the School culture.

Primary School

From Prep to Year 6 students follow the Australian Curriculum where best teaching and learning practices are utilised in the classroom to ensure that our students develop a love of learning.  Students can enjoy Kinder - Year 6 Education at both our Burnie and Ulverstone Campus.
Literacy (English) and Numeracy (Mathematics) skills are a primary focus of the Prep to Year 6 program, with Science, Health, Technologies and Humanities and Social Sciences (HASS) also strongly promoted.  Specialist teachers develop students’ skills in Physical Education, Music, the Arts and LOTE.  A Christian worldview is developed and creatively integrated throughout each of the subject areas, while Christian Living classes provide a dedicated time for students to reflect on God’s glory and develop their spiritual, emotional and social skills.

Middle Years -  Year 7 and 8

The Middle Years is designed as a smooth transition from primary to secondary schooling at our Ulverstone Campus. Students are taught by a small group of core subject teachers, allowing teachers to develop an excellent understanding of their students and their individual needs, as well as assisting with the transition into secondary.


Students in Years 7 and 8 are able to choose from a broad range of elective options across different learning areas. Students are able to select six subjects in both Years 7 and 8 across the year, studying three subjects per semester. Students are encouraged to select a variety of subjects to both their interests and planning for future subjects in Years 9 and 10.

High School -  Year 9 and 10

Years 9 and 10 are a period of great growth for students, as they begin to consider their futures and focus their interest areas of learning. Students continue their studies in the core subject areas, as well as their electives. Students will take part in a Work Experience, exploring options for future employment, as well as spending class time to concentrate on careers skills and their own wellbeing.


Students in Years 9 and 10 are offered a broad range of electives and are encouraged to select according to their interest and aspirations for the future. Students study three electives across the year, developing their skills and understandings in their selected focus areas.

Senior Secondary - Years 11 & 12

Students at Leighland Christian School are able to transition seamlessly from High School into Senior Secondary, studying a range of subjects to work towards the Tasmanian Certificate of Education (TCE). Students are able to select from a broad range of subjects, including courses offered by the Tasmanian Assessment, Standards & Certification (TASC), Vocational Education and Training (VET) subjects, or School-Based Traineeships.


Students experience the benefit of having typically smaller class sizes to receive greater teacher encouragement and individual support. Students also receive support and guidance from our school Careers Counsellor and VET Coordinator, as well as for their pastoral care and graduation celebration from their Year Level Coordinator. We strive to ensure all students receive individual guidance and support to work towards their future aspirations, whether that be receiving their ATAR and studying at University, beginning an apprenticeship or other training, or gaining employment.
