Year 11 and 12 is a significant time in a student’s life. Whilst the transition from the Middle School to the Senior School can be demanding, it is also an exciting time and one that can be a very rewarding experience. With the right knowledge, advice, support and encouragement, students can make wise choices for their learning journey for it to be both fulfilling and satisfying. To help students make the transition successfully, the College has developed a Careers program to aid them in their journey. In Year 10 students explore pathway options, underpinned by Careers exploration which equips them with the knowledge, understandings, skills and abilities to be successful in their pathway; both in the short and long term.
Staff teach units of work from approved work programs that are well designed, organised and monitored and comply with the Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority (QCAA) which is the governing education body for all students in Queensland and/or the Australian Skills Quality Authority, the national Vocational Education and Training regulator.
Students in Year 11 and 12 must study a Religious Education, English and Mathematics subject. They then choose additional subjects from a comprehensive suite of elective study options. The College is committed to enabling students to be successful with their learning, achieve the Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE) and have viable options post Year 12.
St Thomas More College is committed to enabling senior students to be successful with their learning, achieve the Queensland Certificate of Education and have viable options post-secondary school. The College offers quality senior school pathways where students can select from a comprehensive suite of study options. The College has dual pathways options with both offering the opportunity to qualify for a Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE):
Overall Position (OP Pathway): This pathway allows students to pursue direct entrance to university post-secondary school.
Vocational Pathway (VP Pathway): This pathway allows students to pursue TAFE, apprenticeships, traineeships or direct employment post-secondary school.
