Principal's welcome

Welcome to Burpengary State Secondary College. Established in 2015 with year 7 and 8 students the college continues to grow a year level at a time until 2019 when our first year 12 students will graduate. In 2018, the college will welcome students from year 7 through to year 11.

The college has been founded on strong community relationships. The school’s logo, sport and formal uniform, policies and school vision, mission and values reflect a strong community that seeks high expectations and student outcomes.

Located approximately 20 minutes north of Brisbane, the college is set on 12.5 hectares of land. The state-of-the-art student and teacher facilities ensure learning is the central focus for all college participants. The school’s vision ‘Innovative Learning in a Global Community’ is a foundation to the school’s philosophy that young people need an education that allows them to choose a pathway for their future endeavours wherever that may be.

The college's four year strategic plan is founded on ensuring that young people are provided an education that ensures students are given every opportunity to build personal capability to compete in a global workforce.

The college has a strong focus on Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) in addition to its five signature innovative programs. These include Arts; Community Leadership; Sport; Robotics, and Science and Engineering. Students continue to achieve outstanding results winning regional competitions and students being recognised for their ability to develop innovative concepts. In partnership with teachers, parents and carers play a vital role in helping to support their young person in their learning.

As an Independent Public School (IPS) and as a Public Private Partnership (PPP) school, the College is able to strategically plan with parents, carers and the wider College community to ensure the holistic education that young people receive will enable students to meet the complexities they will face in the future.

Burpengary State Secondary College is large enough to provide every student with core, elective and innovation programs, but small enough to focus on each individual students educational learning needs.
