About the project
The new Inner City North State Secondary College will be delivered in conjunction with the Queensland University of Technology
(QUT). The school will be a flagship, future-focused educational facility for Years 7-12 in Brisbane’s inner north.
The school will be located on St Pauls Terrace and Brookes Street in Fortitude Valley. The school will service growing communities
in and around Fortitude Valley, Newstead, Bowen Hills and New Farm and relieve enrolment pressure on Kelvin Grove State
College. The school will open in 2020 to Year 7 students and will grow each year to 2025 when it will accommodate 1,500
students in Years 7-12.
The new school will be the first inner Brisbane school to be built in over 50 years and will adopt a vertical design solution
to reflect its inner urban setting. Technology will be a key part of the new school with innovative and future-focused
approaches, supported by strong university and community partnerships.
The schematic design for the Inner City North State Secondary College is now available and the Department of Education is
hosting a community design showcase for the new high school.

School catchment and enrolment policy
The Department of Education will appoint a school Principal in mid 2018. The Principal will play an important role in the
development of the catchment and enrolment policy for the new school.
The Department of Education and QUT are working closely with key stakeholders to set the foundations of this new flagship
school. The development of the vision for the school will continue with the appointment of the school’s inaugural Principal
in mid-2018. The Principal will lead the development of the school, drawing expertise and input from QUT, leading educators
and the school community.
The Department of Education has undertaken community consultation to inform the planning, design and development of the new
school. This has included workshops with nearby schools, QUT, local business and community groups.
There will be further opportunities for the community to provide feedback as the project progresses.
