Rules and Policies

Home Hill State High School prides itself on the excellent reputation it has earned over the last 50 years in education. The school has implemented a number of policies to ensure the smooth running of our school and the good conduct of our student body.

Please refer to the related links on the right for major school policies.


In line with the ‘New QCE’ senior studies implementation schools are required to ensure their school policies are updated to reflect this new reality. For students one of the most important of these documents is the school’s Assessment Policy.

Home Hill SHS has now updated its Assessment Policy to ensure that there is consistent application of the assessment policy in line with these changes, and ensure that staff and students optimise opportunities to understand and comply with the requirements in that new policy.

The ‘new’ assessment policy, which covers all year levels, will come into force from the beginning of Semester 2, 2019 (Monday 15 July 2019), as will an up-dated Assessment Variation Request Form​. In order to ensure familiarity with this change this document is now made available to parents and students through the school website and official school Facebook page. Specific aspects of the policy will also be highlighted through our up-coming newsletters. 

This new policy provides information for teachers, students and parents/carers about roles, responsibilities, processes and procedures to ensure the integrity of assessment that contributes to the Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE). The framework for the policy is developed from the QCE and QCIA policy and procedures handbook available from and applies to Applied, Applied (Essential), General, General (Extension) subjects, and Short Courses across all faculties.
