Gunnedah High is a happy school situated in the North West of the state. As well as serving the secondary students of the town, almost half the school population is drawn from the surrounding rural district bounded by Boggabri to the north, Breeza to the south, Mullaley to the west and east to Somerton.

The local economy consists of a rich rural base and associated service industries which together provide the available employment opportunities. Recent closures of the abattoir and several local mines have had a significant impact on employment and hence enrolments at Gunnedah High and its feeder primary schools have fallen in the last two years.
