Enrolling at our school

​Brisbane State High School is Queensland’s largest secondary school.

​​​​Prospective students can apply for enrolment at Brisbane State High School (BSHS) under the following categories:

Under the Selective Entry programs prospective students must have school reports that reflect continued excellence in academia, behaviour and effort.

Parents/guardians considering enrolling their child at Brisbane State High School must understand that the school is currently over capacity and an application for enrolment does not guarantee confirmation of a place.

For further information, please read the school's current Enrolment Management Plan, gazetted on 18 November 2016 by the Department of Education and Training. 

School Tours

Brisbane State High School  offers prospective families the opportunity to attend a guided school tour. These are conducted every second Tuesday morning of Terms 1 - 3, commencing at 9:00am. School tours are not conducted during Term 4 due to Enrolments and end-of-year school commitments.

​Please note that due to overwhelming demand, all tours will be reserved for current Year 5 and current Year 6 families as a priority. School tours book out quickly and numbers are limited, therefore bookings are essential.  For further information or to book a  school tour please click here

Decision on Enrolment

Selective Entry - The Executive Principal is responsible for all decisions on Selective Entry enrolments and his decision on selection will be final. 

Local Catchment Area - The Executive Principal is responsible for all decisions on enrolments and may request any additional documentation and conduct other enquiries deemed necessary to satisfy eligibility criteria.

Where the Executive Principal forms a preliminary view that an application will not satisfy the conditions of enrolment, applicants will be notified in writing. The applicant may respond to the Executive Principal's preliminary view by making a submission to the Executive​ Principal, no later than seven days after receiving the preliminary view letter.

If no submission is received, the Executive Principal's preliminary view will be treated as the final decision and no further notice will be provided.

If a submission is received, the Executive Principal will consider the submission and make a final decision. A final decision notice will be provided to the applicant as soon as is practicable.

The Executive Principal is responsible for determining whether a student is entitled to be enrolled at the school on the basis of the requirements outlined under the Enrolment Management Plan and within the enrolment capacity of the school. There is no review of the Executive Principal's decision.​​​​
