Why choose our school?

​Kepnock High has distinctive Junior Secondary and Senior Schools.​

In Junior Secondary the emphasis is on core teachers working with Year 7, 8 and 9 students. The Academic Challenge and Excellence (ACE) program provides extension and acceleration for academically able students in English, Mathematics and Science . Entry to this program is through individual application at the time of enrolment. Each year, the Kepnock High P&C sponsors bursaries for four Year 8 students in the areas of Academics, Sport and Culture. Further information is available in the Enrolment package.

In the Senior School, Kepnock offers a wide range of courses, including 30 Authority (OP) subjects, 10 Authority- registered subjects and 13 nationally accredited Certificate I, II and III courses. Students may choose a university (OP) pathway; a vocational pathway, or a combination of the two. In addition, the school encourages students to seek out School-based Apprenticeships and Traineeships to round-out their education and training and enhance their employment prospects.

Kepnock High is a Gateway School in Agribusiness and the only state school in Bundaberg to offer training in the Agricultural Sciences and Rural Operations.

As an eLearning Accredited School and a Microsoft Academy School, our staff are strongly encouraged to embed digital technologies in their teaching and learning, enhancing students’ engagement with their studies. The optional take-home laptop program ensures participating students have seamless access to their learning 24/7.
