The Glenleighden School does not offer subjects which contribute to a Queensland Certificate of Education or an OP ranking. However, it offers individualised programs with a focus on literacy and numeracy and other skills for daily living and work with a statement of learning and the opportunity to gain a Qld Certificate of Individual Achievement.
Student’s mental health and emotional well-being is also of crucial importance in the Senior School program.
Students in Years 10-12 are given opportunities to work across a range of work settings, with flexible options allowing students to move into paid employment while still attending school part-time. The Life Skills program includes independent use of public transport and access to community facilities.
