Welcome to the web page of the new high school for Highfields.

Location of the new secondary school at Highfields
​New secondary school to be located at 26 Polzin Road, Highfields.

I am pleased to be able to advise that planning for the new high school is well underway.  Under the Support and Resources, Forms and documents tab above is a document which maps planning processes to date, and identifies a number of key activities and milestones in the lead up to the opening of the new school in 2015. 

The new high school advisory committee has met on two occasions with an initial focus on developing an Education Brief, with the next meeting to be scheduled once a facilities master plan is developed for the Highfields site.

Pleasingly, following the submission of an Education Brief for the new high school, I can advise that the school will open with a stand-alone purpose built Special Education facility.  This has been brought forward following community feedback and the analysis of data from catchment schools.

Next term will see the commencement of consultation on the name of the new school.  Further updates on this process will be posted on this web page as well as through school newsletters.

Please contact the Darling Downs South West Regional Office on telephone (07) 4616 9111 with any enquiries regarding the new high school.
