Principal’s welcome

Welcome to Sandgate District State High School – an Independent Public School. 

Sandgate High has been providing a comprehensive co-educational secondary education for young people in the North Eastern Bayside suburbs of Brisbane since 1959. 

Our Mission is Expanding Horizons, our Motto is Industria Floremus (which translates as with Industry we Flourish). Our Mantra is Success through Effort.  We pride ourselves on working hard in partnership with our community to provide a broad experience of secondary education for all of our students.

Sandgate District State High School operates with three main values to form a consistent framework for students, staff and families to build outstanding futures for our students.

  • Be Respectful - of yourself, others and the community
  • Be Work Ready  - every lesson, everyday
  • Be your Best  - at all time

These values guide the development of our students toward becoming healthy, socially responsible citizens able to make a contribution to their local community. A conscious effort by the school to Expand Horizons means students contributing to "their" community may be anywhere in the World!

The school takes pride in the delivery of a number of highly regarded Signature Programs including:

  • Academic Achievers
  • Immerse IT
  • Academies of Sport
  • Master Music 

Sandgate also has a number of unique partnerships with universities, industry and community organisations which enhance student real-world learning and pathways to post-school options.

I invite you to spend some time exploring our website to gain an understanding of how Sandgate District State High School inspires individuals on their educational and personal journey, by Expanding their Horizon within and outside the classroom.  If you need any further information please do not hesitate to contact the school.
