Gympie State High School recognises as its prime obligation, the provision of access to an appropriate educational service for students whose principal place of residence is within the school's catchment area.

As a result of the implementation of the school’s Enrolment Management Plan, we need to request some additional information to allow the school to confirm if a student is to be regarded as living 'in-catchment' or 'out-of-catchment'.

Please see view our catchment area.

Enrolment process

Finding the right environment to maximise your child’s individual talents while offering a wide range of opportunities can be challenging. At Gympie State High School open communication and positive relationships are very important to us. Gympie State High School offers an education to help develop the whole child – that’s what makes us different.

To secure your child’s enrolment at Gympie State High School please follow this 3 step process:

Step 1

Fill in and return the Intention to Enrol form with a certified copy of your child’s birth certificate and proof of residence (e.g. utility bill) to Gympie State High School via:

Step 2

An enrolment pack will then be forwarded to you, which must be completed and returned to the school.

Step 3

Schedule an enrolment interview to finalise enrolment by contacting our Enrolment Officer on (07) 5489 8333 or via email

Open communication and positive relationships are very important to us. This is why we like to meet all of our new families before you enrol. This could be at our Parent Information Evening, on a School Tour or at an Enrolment Interview.

The purpose of these meetings is to enable you to gain a broader understanding of our school, and provide a chance to ask questions about what matters most to you while witnessing first hand the energy and friendliness of our school.

We look forward to welcoming you into the Gympie State High School community.
