The State Government has released the final catchment maps and names of the two new state schools being built in Providence South Ripley.

The $50 million primary school will be called Ripley Valley State Primary College, catering for prep to year 6 students in 2020. The $70 million high school will be named Ripley Valley State Secondary College, welcoming year 7 and 8 students in 2020.

Catchments for both schools have also been finalised with formal enrolments opening on 21 October, 2019.


Education Minister Grace Grace said the countdown was on until the two state-of-the-art schools open, along with six others across Queensland.

“These schools will be game changers for the Ripley Valley and Ipswich communities and are supporting local jobs, with over 300 tradies on site every day,” she said.

“Stage 1 of Ripley Valley State Primary College will include an admin building, canteen and resource centre, a multi-purpose hall and oval, as well as areas for prep and general learning.

“Stage 1 of Ripley Valley State Secondary College will deliver an admin building, robotics centre, business, fashion and graphic design centre, plus flexible general learning spaces.

“The school will also open with a sports field, hospitality centre, art and design centre, senior technology centre and indoor and outdoor sports courts.”
