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, Science and Music. 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.
