Careers planning begins formally at Grammar in Year 10 when students create their Senior Education and Training [SET] Plans.

During the year the School sets aside time for students to draft their SET plans, engage in Work Experience, visit Careers and Subject Expos and Information Evenings as well as having a one-on-one SET interview.   Students also engage in progress interviews with their Head of Year and Careers staff during Years 11 and 12.
Where do Grammar Graduates move on to post-Year 12?
75 – 80% of Grammar Year 12 graduates move on to University.  Graduates from Grammar attend Universities ranging from the University of the Sunshine Coast to the University of Qld, Queensland University of Technology located in Brisbane and interstate and overseas Institutions. The School  also offers students the opportunity to commence a School Based Traineeship or Apprenticeship in Year 11 and 12 to gain a nationally recognised Vocational Education & Training qualification while still at School.

Testimonials

I have been part of the Grammar family ever since Prep.
So many doors have been opened for me at Grammar, providing me so many magnificent opportunities to thrive. All throughout my time at Grammar I have been continuously encouraged by teachers to not only achieve, but to extend myself in all areas. One area I aspire to is our specialist lessons. These weekly opportunities stimulate our imaginations and provide motivation to pursue our unique talents. An area I am most passionate about is the subject of Visual Arts. I have been nurtured to further my love and mastery of the subject through the continued support of the specialist teachers in this area.

Testimonials

Our family relocated from Hong Kong to the Sunshine Coast five years ago. When looking for a suitable school we chose Sunshine Coast Grammar because of its reputation and balance for academic and sporting excellence. We fell in love with the grounds and superb facilities at the school. The boys are all involved heavily with the music program and finding friends and fitting in was made a lot easier by starting the school rugby program immediately. Through the boys sports and extra curricular activities they were quick to form friendships that will have a long and lasting impact beyond their time at Grammar.
