Classes at Calwell High School are organised under a weekly timetable. There are three lesson periods each day. Lessons are on average 90 minutes.  The student's day begins with tutor group where attendance is marked and important school information distributed.

Students take part in five core classes (English, SOSE, Maths, Science and PE or Dance) as well as two electives of their own choice. In addition students also take part in our Aspire Pastoral Care program once a fortnight.

A copy of our timetable and a map of the school  are available at the school front office.

At Calwell each subject studied by students takes place on a timetable line. While the timetable below looks complicated it ensures that each subject has the same allocation of time.
