Our school

Welcome to North Rockhampton State High School

North Rockhampton State High is a large Band 10 coeducational school situated in the centre of North Rockhampton. Currently, the school has a student population of about 950 students and eighty two teaching staff. A large Special Education Unit and a link with the full service school in the Canning Street annexe provide additional support structures within the school.

The school has an extensive range of curriculum offerings, one of the largest in the Rockhampton district, with growing flexibility for students in the senior phase.

TAFE link courses, school-based traineeships, structured work placements and alternative programs for students all contribute to a diverse and futures-orientated approach to schooling.

Year 8 and 9 study a set course with the option of selecting one elective for each year. The electives are chosen from the arts and the technology Key Learning Areas (KLAs). In Year 10, students study English, mathematics and science and then choose three elective subjects. The final semester in year 10 links strongly with senior phase offerings.

A very strong extra curricular program is a hallmark of the school. Outstanding sporting success of students at district, regional state and national levels reflect a strong school and staff commitment to sport. The Sporting Talent Extension Program (STEP) was introduced in 2006 in the sport of hockey to further promote the excellent achievements of out students in this sport. It is planned for STEP to extend into other sports in the future. Music and instrumental music programs are also widely recognised in the Rockhampton community, with the school’s instrumental music ensembles producing outstanding results.

Growing links with local primary schools have meant the transition to secondary school is uncomplicated and supported, and students from other schools who attend are assisted by our wide-ranging group of support staff, including chaplain, guidance staff, youth worker, school-based youth health nurse, police liaison officer, year coordinators and others.
