Principal’s welcome

Welcome to Sandgate District State High School – where innovation, excellence and tradition are carefully crafted into a world class educational experience for our students and where students, staff and parents enjoy the benefits of a school with an excellent reputation.

What makes our school special is our culture of respect; our appreciation of difference; our focus on participation, opportunity and open communication; our excellent facilities and our commitment to 'Expanding the Horizon' of every student.  Our values of 'Be Respectful', 'Be Work Ready', 'Be Your Best' capture the essence of what our school is about.

Yet, Sandgate is about much more than this.  We concern ourselves with developing the character of the whole student in the academic, cultural, sporting and citizenship areas.  We set high standards and encourage our students to aspire to be the best they can be.  Our ultimate goal is to ensure that every Sandgate graduate is a socially responsible, decent citizen who can successfully transition into their chosen post-school pathway, whether it is tertiary education, further training and/or employment. We also want our graduates to commit to living a healthy life and encourage them to put a high priority on family and friendship as a key to success and happiness in the future.

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.
