Welcome to Redbank Plains State High School, a comprehensive school that meets the educational needs of 1700 students in Brisbane’s western corridor. For over thirty years the school has delivered high quality academic, sporting and cultural programs to its community. The school has high expectations of its students and is dedicated to ensuring successful pathways for all to attain their aspirations.
 
 
The school offers a broad Academic Pathway to tertiary study and Vocational Pathways to TAFE and employment. Signature academic and sporting programs include the “Sirius” selective-entry academic extension classes in the core curriculum of Junior Secondary and sports excellence programs in Rugby League, Volleyball and Soccer.
 
Specialized facilities allow state of the art learning to take place in science laboratories, catering kitchens, trade workshops and performance spaces. The school is a partner in the Westec Trade Training Centre where industry level facilities ensure students have a head-start on entry to the skilled trades. Multiple sporting fields allow a range of sports to be played to the highest school level and an attractive campus enhances student welfare. An entrepreneurial catering venture “Platters on Willow” provides real-world learning in both hospitality and business.
 
The school maintains a wide range of sports from Rugby League to Volleyball and has multiple talented coaches on staff. It promotes culture and the Arts with a large Instrumental Music program and performances in Art, Dance, Drama and Music. The school promotes and celebrates community service by its students.
 
Students at Redbank Plains are supported by a Special Education program, Guidance Officers, a Youth Support Coordinator, Community Liaison Officers and academic staff in the roles of Deans and Year Coordinators. All are dedicated to the school’s motto of “Learning First, Leading Tomorrow”.
 
The school has high expectations of student engagement, attendance, compliance with the dress code and behaviour, both on campus and in the community. It is committed to equity of outcomes and social justice and believes education enables both social and economic enhancement and ensures social cohesion.
 
I welcome you to our school.
