Welcome to Deception Bay State High School

Deception Bay State High School, established in 1992, is a co-educational state school situated just north of Brisbane. With approximately 950 students, the school provides a rigorous and comprehensive education that is relevant and future-focussed for our diverse student population. A key vision for the school is empowering all learners to thrive.

Our Junior Secondary programs deliver the Australian curriculum with a focus on literacy, numeracy, reading and student wellbeing to empower our learners to thrive. The Year 6 into Year 7 student transition program has been built on solid primary school partnerships and ensures each student is supported in their transition to high school. We pride ourselves on a Junior Secondary program that inspires learners and builds the skills to be successful in the Senior years.
The unique mentoring and support provided extends into the Senior Phase of learning to ensure students' success post secondary school. The curriculum is tailor made for students to offer flexibility and ensure no student is left behind. Our school provides students with a learning environment where they can achieve their best. We believe that all students have the ability to learn and strive for personal excellence.
Our school community identified four values that underpin student learning and social growth. These values of belonging, integrity, aspiration and persistence ensure that all our students are valued, feel safe at school and can learn in an environment that is supportive, challenging and recognises individual difference. Parents/carers are encouraged to play an active role in their child's education to ensure that all learners thrive.
