Year 10 is a vital educational year for young people. For many of our young people, Year 10 is the beginning of the senior phase of learning (years 11 & 12). In this year, students will commence planning their intended senior phase of learning education and/or training options (SET plans). They are asked to make important decisions about study for Years 11–12 such as, achieving a Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE) or a Queensland Certificate of Individual Achievement (QCIA), aiming for a vocational education and training (VET) Certificate III, seeking employment or pursuing further education. More students are choosing a combination of these pathways.

Year 10 is the transition year that connects the middle and senior phases of learning and sets up continuity of learning across the full 12 years of schooling. This helps young people to continue to engage with education and training and successfully complete Year 12 or its equivalent.

The curriculum programs used in year 10 are based on the same Key Learning Areas of year 8 and 9. However, there is a focus on the skills students need — to work with knowledge, to grow and manage themselves, and to become active participants in local communities.

Our Year 11 and 12 curriculum is flexible and includes Queensland Studies Authority - Registered Subjects such as Prevocational Mathematics, English Communication, Social and Community Studies and Creative arts. These subjects are normally combined with vocational education and training certificates in areas such as Automotive, Business, Information Technology, Work Educatin and Music. We also encourage our young people to engage in, camps, outdoor activities and work experience programs where appropriate.
