The school provides secondary education services from Year 8 to 12 in the Kilcoy Shire. (Population 3,500). Students also travel from Woodford to complete Year 11 and 12. Students are drawn from a range of lifestyles based around the town of Kilcoy, which depends largely on the local meat works, with other employment in local service industries.

There has been a steady decline in the traditional beef and dairy sectors of the rural economy, with some diversification to other rural industry. Some students live on small acreage blocks. With current enrolment stable in the mid - 200ís, our students enjoy the benefits of a small size secondary school. In particular students and parents value this personalised education service.

The school is located on 8 hectares of land between Seib Street and Kilcoy Creek. A 1 hectare school farm is located on the eastern side of Kilcoy Creek. The compact building complex includes a well-equipped Resource Centre and specialist facilities for Science, Agriculture, Industrial Technology, recently refurbished Home Economics catering kitchen, Business, Art, and information Technology.

A recently completed Administration block is used for administration and student services. In addition to sports facilities within the grounds, the school uses the nearby Anzac Memorial Park, Kilcoy Swimming Pool and Kilcoy Tennis Courts.
