Highfields State Secondary College

Welcome to Highfields State Secondary College – Toowoomba’s newest state education facility.  Founded in January, 2015 with 262 Year 7 and 8 students, the college currently caters for students from Year 7 to Year 12.  Highfields is located just a short 15 minute drive from the centre of Toowoomba and is the fastest growing inland area in Queensland, and one of the fastest growing areas within Australia.

At Highfields State Secondary College our students are taught by highly-skilled and motivated specialist teaching staff. Our modern, state of the art facilities include Performing and Visual Art Centres, Science laboratories, specialised Industrial Technology and Hospitality areas, a spacious Resource Centre and fully air-conditioned classrooms.  We are also a BYOD school which provides a 21st century education for our young people.

HSSC has a strong direction which is underpinned by five core values - Kindness, Persistence, Resilience, Respect and Responsibility.  Students assume responsibility for their own learning and adopt a Growth Mindset within their daily lives. The College has embraced Positive Behaviour for learning with three clear expectations - Take Care of Yourself, Take Care of Each Other and Take Care of This Place.  These expectations coupled with our Highfields Heroes program assist students to make good decisions about their own behaviours. 

At HSSC, we believe that every student has the ability to learn and expect each person to strive for personal bests.  We would like our students to have a range of options for a quality life because they have maximised every opportunity that this school has offered.  When students leave HSSC, they will have the capacity to transform the future and create memorable lifetime experiences along the way.  HSSC students will be Learners Today. Leaders Tomorrow.
