Our school

Heatley Secondary College embraces the vision: Your Future Our Focus. It is a vision that drives all aspects of College life.  We want our students to exit the college as active, responsible and informed citizens, with the skills to enable a rich and fulfilling future, with career choice opportunities and positive family and social relationships.

Our statement of purpose clearly articulates our core business:  Providing and delivering a quality curriculum that prepares students academically, vocationally and socially for future pathways.

At Heatley Secondary College, we provide more than the usual secondary education. We are a unique educational campus which offers both Secondary education and Vocational training across a range of academic, trade and digital areas to adolescents, young and older adults.

Heatley Secondary College incorporates a traditional High School, an Adult College with day and night classes, and a Digital Trade Training Centre, the Townsville Creative Technologies College.

Our traditional High School offers an extensive curriculum which caters for the needs of all students no matter what ability or interest, including an Academic Extension Program (ACE), a Special Education Program (SEP), a Learning Support Program  and an extensive Vocational education training (VET) program, including the Heatley Automotive training program.

The Townsville Creative Technologies College offers a number of Certificate I, II and III Courses including Digital Media, Music, Animation, and Gaming, made possible by state of the art facilities and our links with industry.

The Heatley Adult Secondary College offers a range of Queensland Studies Authority (QCAA) subjects both during the day and at night to support adult learners to gain access to University, the Defence force, the Public Service or gain job advancement.
