Our Senior school starts in some ways in Year 10 and continues through to Years 11 and 12.

Year 10 provides a link between the Junior and Senior school. The Year 10 program is based on the attainment of specific outcomes designed to ensure students have reached suitable standards which they continue to develop as much as possible. An English and Mathematics are compulsory. Students also select electives for each semester from a large range of subjects on offer.

Students have a set program to develop the Senior Education and Training (SET) Plan which outlines specific targets and goals for Year 11 and beyond.

In Years 11 and 12 students study six subjects. In addition to an English subject and a Mathematics subject, students choose four more subjects from a large range of subjects. Students may study General Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority (QCAA) subjects or select from a range of Applied subjects. The Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) has replaced the Overall Position (OP) as the standard pathway to tertiary study for Queensland Year 12s. ATARs will be calculated using a student's best score from five general subjects, or four general subjects plus one applied subject or VET course at AQF certificate III or above.

Our school community considers it very important that students graduate from our school with a worthwhile qualification, as well as a range of skills and attributes that we help them develop. Therefore our Senior years’ program is geared toward rigorous study and it is complemented by a range of opportunities for students to broaden their experiences.

All students participate in our Mansfield Activity Program (MAP).

With school and parental approval, students requiring a greater challenge may apply to complete university subjects.

Other students choose to undertake alternative pathways such as:

Senior students are provided with the opportunity to engage in work experience placement during school holiday periods. This is a very rich and motivating learning experience for students, as they may choose their own field of interest.
