IPSWICH STATE HIGH SCHOOL

'Success with Dignity'

Principal: Mr Simon Riley

Co-educational secondary school for years 8 - 12.

Ipswich State High School is a developing community which encourages all students to achieve the best possible educational outcomes. Each student is assigned to a Care, Support and Information [CSI] pastoral class on enrolment. These CSI classes are based on a House system, and remain in place throughout the student’s enrolment at ISHS.

A specific Transition Program is provided for all Year 7 students from the seven major local feeder schools during Term 4 each year. A three day orientation program focusing on high school organization is provided for Grade 8 students at the start of each year. Students in the Middle Years of Schooling [Grades 8/9]engage in studies across all Key Learning Areas [KLAs], with some integrated subject offerings.

Year 10 - 11 Transition begins with Semester 2 “taster“ units for all students. These units are provided to give students an experience of Senior subjects, and an introduction to a senior-style assessment regime.Some Senior subjects are offered in composite Grade 11/12 classes to ensure the widest possible curriculum offering. Vocational subjects are also offered, with an increasing number of senior students engaging in School-based Apprenticeships or Traineeships. ICTs are embedded across all academic and most VET subjects.
