Curriculum

Home Hill State High School prides itself on delivering high quality secondary education. The school provides quality education to all learners, whether they are students with special needs or students receiving State and National awards. As a result of its focus on student outcomes and flexible pathways, the school has a proud and respected record of student achievement. In the junior school, curriculum variety is offered through a combination of compulsory and elective subject offerings designed to meet the personal requirements of learners. Throughout the school the learning of students is enhanced by support from specialist teaching staff and integrated curriculum programs targeting literacy and numeracy skills.

Multiple curriculum pathways are offered in the senior school despite our relatively small size. Students are provided with a range of Queensland Studies Authority and Authority-Registered subject options. There is considerable curriculum depth to allow for personalisation of curriculum choices, for example, we offer two English options, four Mathematics subjects as well as a variety of Science, Humanities, Business, Technology, Physical Education and Arts subjects. Vocational Education and Training is available through the school with Certificates I in Business and Certificate I in Information Digital Media and Technology on offer. School of  Distance Education programs provide students with the opportunity to study in subject areas not currently offered at a classroom level.

The school maintains strong partnerships with the local TAFE, providing further opportunity for students to enrol in the VET in Schools program in a variety of courses. Many students elect to undertake these certificate programs. A number of students choose to begin a school based apprenticeship and traineeship.

At Home Hill State High School we pride ourselves on the curriculum delivered to students and our outstanding academic record.
