Opened in 2010, Brisbane Bayside State College offers a superb learning environment for students in Years 7 to 12.  With almost 1000 students, 110 staff and commencing its 6th year in 2015, the College is proudly creating the traditions of a school of excellence in the academic, cultural and sporting arenas. In 2015 the school welcomed Year 7s for the first time. Brisbane Bayside State College believes strong relationships are at the core of all success and prides itself on the way it celebrates inclusion and cultural diversity.

The school values input from parents and believes the stronger the relationship between the school, the home and the student, the more likely students will succeed.

Facilities: Purpose-built Year 7 building (opening in 2015) with nine state-of-the-art, technologically rich classrooms, which are furnished with modular educational furniture fostering the creation of a supportive and collaborative learning environment.

Subjects/Electives Years 7 to 10: Junior Secondary students have a core teacher for English and History/Geography as well as for Maths and Science. Students also have a common home room for these core subjects.

Electives Years 11 and 12: 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 Authority or Authority-registered subjects.

Students on a vocational pathway can elect to study VET subjects both on and off the campus. Alternative Pathways include opportunities such as school-based apprenticeships and traineeships (SAT), attending external Queensland Studies Authority registered training organisations (RTOs such as TAFE) and work experience. Students on these pathways exit Year 12 with a Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE) that outlines both school and vocational studies.
