Principal's welcome

Welcome to the Upper Coomera State College community, a co-educational prep to year 12 College located in the Northern Gold Coast, one of the fastest growing regions of Australia. The college attracts 2200 students who all enjoy and value learning, strive to achieve their best and are active members of a safe, supportive and positive school community.

The college motto, 'Learning Pathways to the Future' reflects our commitment to working in partnership with families to ensure every child has a quality education which prepares them for a positive future. We pride ourselves as a leader in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education, sporting excellence and the arts, providing innovative, academically challenging, engaging and inspiring learning pathways for high achieving students. Upon completion at Upper Coomera State College students will be equipped with the confidence and lifelong skills to succeed in their chosen pathways.

The college has a very clear improvement agenda that focuses on the five priority areas of:

(1) Explicit Instruction Lesson Structure (2) Reading Framework (3) Mastery of Achievement Standards/Cognitive Verbs (4) Writing Framework and (5) College Tone and Culture. Through our improvement agenda we aim to continually improve the culture of learning and the outcomes that children achieve.

Choosing a school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will ever make and we strongly believe Upper Coomera State College has the right blend of academic, sporting and cultural experiences for your child.

We invite you to visit us and observe firsthand our wonderful school community.
