Subjects Offered Learning

A wide range of subjects is offered for students in Years 7–10. From Year 11, the choice of both Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority (QCAA) subjects and QCAA approved vocational subjects are offered.

Students who meet the requirements of the QCAA are eligible to receive the Queensland Certificate of Education or the Queensland Certificate of Individual Achievement at the end of Year 12.
