Lockyer District High School opened on the 1st  January 1913 as a Secondary Department attached to Gatton State School. In 1917, due to increasing enrolments, Lockyer High School was created on the present Gatton State School site. Lockyer District High School was opened at its’ present location in 1961.

Since that time, our school has developed with the town in establishing a positive and respected reputation and is recognised as a leader in the fields of academic, sporting and cultural excellence. Our school has produced many of the community’s local leaders and today is home to 820 students.
