​​​​​​​​The department actively monitors enrolment growth throughout Queensland to ensure all children, no matter where they live, have access to quality educational facilities.

In the 2022–23 State Budget, the Queensland Government announced 5 more new schools for 2025 and 2026 in the fast-growing areas of Caboolture West, Caloundra South, Ripley, Flagstone and Bahrs Scrub.

This is in addition to 11 new schools to cater for growth in 2023 and 2024, including:

In 2025 and 2026, we are opening:

When planning for new schools, the department considers the capacity of the existing network, the ability to expand existing schools, growth in the local student population and land availability. These reviews inform the decision to establish new schools at the appropriate time and in the correct location to meet student demand.

This planning work is an important step in prioritising future investments in new school infrastructure. The department is planning for a number of new schools*, including:

  • a new state school at Burpengary East
  • a new high school in Greater Flagstone
  • a new special school in Springfield/Redbank
  • a new state school in Springfield
  • a new state school in Toowoomba.

*A final investment decision has not been made regarding these future schools and will be dependent on ongoing monitoring and analysis of the population growth in these areas.
