PublishingPageContent
​The Senior Secondary years at Nerang State High School are Years 10, 11 and 12. Students in these year levels are distinguished from the rest of the school by their school uniform and the expectation that they will be positive role models for students in Junior Secondary. Students in Senior Secondary have the opportunity to develop their leadership skills, explore future pathways and excel in the educational fields they have chosen. Leadership skills are developed through participation in the Gold Coast Junior Council, the Beacon Program, Student Council and the School Leadership team. Students are encouraged to nominate for positions and are mentored by year Co-ordinators and teaching staff. In Year 10, students are able to choose subjects that are predominately academic or vocational. These pathways reflect student interest, their strengths and their aspirations. Students are provided with opportunities to ensure that their choices are attainable through the Care Program, the subject choices available, the Career Expo and support from the school.

Queensland Certification of Education (QCE) 

In Senior Secondary, all students are working towards achieving the Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE).  If they follow a vocational pathway they will graduate with one or more VET qualifications or if they have followed an academic pathway, an Overall Position (OP) score that will enable them to pursue their studies at university.


Griffith University Early Start to Tertiary Studies (GUEST)

In Years 11 and 12, students are able to pursue their academic aspirations through programs such as GrifBiol, GrifBusiness and the GUEST (Griffith University Early Start to Tertiary Studies) Program. Further information is provided to students through the Guidance Officer, the University Showcase and the Wellbeing Program.
