Local Catchment Area

​Brisbane State High School has a strong commitment to students from the local area.

To be eligible for in catchment enrolment, parents or legal guardians who seek to enrol their child at the school will need to fully demonstrate that the student's principal place of residence is genuinely within the  defined catchment area. Current proof of residency at the address indicated must be provided upon enrolment, as outlined in the Enrolment Management Plan.
