Stage 6 Acceleration

Stage 6 Acceleration

Acceleration in Stage 6 courses

Students may accelerate in all courses (grade advancement), in one course or in a number of courses.

Acceleration must be based on the principle of compression of work, not omission of work. Students who accelerate in one or more courses must achieve the required outcomes of the courses, but in a shorter time frame (ie one or more years in advance of their cohort).

Decisions about the acceleration of students will be made by principals.

For more information regarding Stage 6 Acceleration visit the NESA website.


Hunter Sports High School will be offering Year 9 students the option of accelerating in a course for the HSC.

Applications for Accelerated courses will be open early in Term 3.
