Campus Structure of Western Cape College
Each of our three campuses are set in their own amazing cultural, social and geographical environment, on the Cape York Peninsula in Far North Queensland. Our campus locations are unique with different challenges. Western Cape College faces these challenges head on, determined to foster educational excellence.
Mapoon Campus began as a one teacher community school with only a handful of students. Since then the school has grown into a P-6 education facility. The Campus is structured on the College’s staged schooling model. The central focus at Mapoon Campus is on improving the literacy and numeracy standards of students in a safe environment that is open to all community members. This open policy has been a pivotal part in improving the outcomes for the students at the Campus.
Weipa Campus, formally known as Weipa North State School is a P-12 education facility. Since inception, the school has serviced the senior schooling needs of students from across the Cape and more recently the Torres Strait. The Campus is the central hub for Western Cape College due to the central location and facilities available.
The Weipa enrolment figures have grown considerably each year since the establishment of the College.
The Western Cape College Residential Campus is located in Weipa. The boarding facilities give students in Years 7-12, from all over the Cape and Torres Straits access to a high school education.
