Year 7, 2022 Aspire program 

At Brisbane State High School, we offer a two year selective entry Enrichment Program called 'Aspire'. The Aspire program comprises of two strands of study for Year 7 and 8: 

1. Maths/Science; and 

2. English/Humanities.  

The courses offered explore topics in greater breadth and depth than normally required and thus enable learners to develop an appreciation of the wider context of the subject area. All students, regardless of enrolment category (Local Catchment, Academic Selective Entry, Sporting Selective Entry or Cultural Selective Entry – Visual Art or Music), must apply to be considered for this program. 

Information about how to apply for the Aspire program in 2022 was emailed on Friday, 10 September 2021 to parents and guardians of students commencing Year 7 in 2022.

Year 6 conditional enrolment – Aspiring Minds program

'Conditional enrolment' requires students to commit to and participate in the Aspiring Minds program during Year 6. 

The Aspiring Minds program engages students in:

  • higher-order, creative and lateral thinking skills and processes
  • problem-solving and decision-making
  • complexity of challenge

appropriate degrees of independence and learning to work interdependently.

Students completing the Aspiring Minds Program must maintain a high level of participation and achievement to maintain their 'conditional enrolment' status.

During Year 6, students who have been offered conditional enrolment will be asked to provide evidence of their primary school levels of achievement.

Year 6, semester 1 reports confirming sustained high standards of commitment, behaviour and academic performance are necessary before the enrolment becomes unconditional.

View the Aspiring Minds page on the school website for further information on the Aspiring Minds program.
