Principal’s Welcome

Coorparoo Secondary College is a great school that is founded upon a proud tradition of promoting academic excellence, excellence in the arts, science and innovation. This is a school with a growing reputation where students are provided with opportunities to achieve their personal best across the areas of academic, sporting, cultural and citizenship development. Coorparoo Secondary College offers a comprehensive learning environment led by passionate and engaging teachers working together to deliver outstanding achievements. We have a clear vision with strong values which are embedded in all aspects of our school culture founded on high expectations in learning, behaviour and presentation. Coorparoo Secondary College seeks to provide a supportive environment where students, staff and parents respect the roles that each contributes to the holistic development of all students.

In recent years our college has undergone many exciting changes including a multi-million dollar upgrade which is reflected in the magnificent state-of-the-art facilities including a science centre, an arts and multi media centre, technology and hospitality centre, e-learning centre, library, senior learning centre and junior learning centre. Our new facilities have the latest technology that are functional and aesthetically pleasing.

We are proud of our school and what it offers the students. The College curriculum is designed to provide opportunities for all students to pursue their interests and gain a strong foundation for further study or preparedness for the world of work. The school promotes an atmosphere which encourages all students to become involved and 'having a go' no matter what their strengths and weaknesses. Integral to the success of this unique school is our strong relationship with our local community. Our relationship is important and opportunities to be involved with our community are valued as we continue to develop innovative ways of working together to optimise student outcomes.

At Coorparoo Secondary College we are “Creating Tomorrow Together”. This vision statement, emanating from our cornerstones of school wide expectations of: - I am Safe, I am Responsible and I am Respectful, underpins what we teach, how we teach and even how we operate.

Being part of this passionate school community means that you are surrounded by possibility and opportunity every day. I am convinced that Coorparoo’s balanced approach - between respecting the proud traditions and stimulating innovation and progress - will bring great benefits to students personally and professionally in the future.
