A Unique Warwick High School Experience
Secondary schooling at our Warwick high school campus carries on the learnings of the primary years with a stronger focus on character development, academic achievement and future pathways. This, combined with continued emphasis on our school values, helps us to raise confident and capable human beings.
Key Subjects and Learning in Secondary School
At secondary level, classes are timetabled according to a variety of considerations. All students follow the Australian Curriculum and the senior syllabus as prescribed by the Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority (QCAA). This includes the core areas of learning in English, Maths, Science and HASS (Humanities and Social Science) with a variety of arts and technology subjects added to this list according to year level.
Secondary School Curriculum
The School of Total Education philosophy requires an adaptation of the national curriculum to accommodate its distinctive approach, without undermining the integrity of the curriculum.
This is seen in programs such as integrated studies where various subjects are periodically combined under a themed approach across a number of grades in junior secondary and Big History – where Science and HASS are combined in Year 10 for a term.
There are a range of student clubs and activities available according to student interests.
Currently these include a medieval club, a performing and recording group, a film making club, a gemstone and rock group as well as a chess club. According to numbers, there is often a coding club as well.
These groups gather at lunchtime or after school. There is also a secondary choir group who meet before or within school hours. Music instrumental lessons are also available throughout the school program, including piano, guitar, ukulele and brass instruments.
