The Gap State High School has
been proudly educating students within the north western suburbs since it first
opened in 1960. The school has grown steadily over this time and the
facilities have been steadily extended and upgraded on the current site.
It is located within approximately a 15 minute drive from the Brisbane CBD and
enjoys good access to public transport.
The school is nestled on an
attractive sloping site in the picturesque foothills of Mt Coot-tha and the grounds provide a pleasant environment for students and teachers alike, with
parcels of natural bushland rolling grassed areas and a large oval. Its central
location facilitates strong partnerships with our local primary schools
including Ashgrove State School, Bardon State School, Payne Road State School,
The Gap State School, Hilder Road State School, Oakleigh State School,
Rainworth State School, Ithaca Creek State School and Mt Nebo State School. The
school is also close to the Queensland University of Technology and the
University of Queensland.
The Gap High has a history of strong academic performances, with students consistently achieving well above state and national benchmarks.
At The Gap State High School students are given opportunities to develop skills, knowledge, attitudes and values to enable them to seek challenges and continue to learn beyond schooling. The students enjoy a safe, healthy and secure environment focusing on learning, achievements and success.
The school values the strong partnerships formed with our families and the school offers a wide array of opportunities to get involved. Parents and members of the community are welcomed into the life of the school through opportunities to become involved and informed about school activities most significantly via the Parents and Citizens Association and various sub-committees. The Activities for Activities (A4A) group provide many opportunities for parents, families and students to engage with our school community.
