Northern Beaches State High School opened in January 1997. The school is situated in the suburb of Deeragun in the City of Thuringowa approximately 20 km north of the Townsville CBD.

As at July 2006 we had 462 students in years 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12.

The school caters for students in a coeducational setting.

The school services the “Northern Beaches Corridor” which extends along the Bruce Highway from the Bohle River to Rollingstone. The Northern Beaches area has seen a high level of growth recently which is expected to continue into the future with a number of significant housing developments underway. The school is well placed to cater for new residents who will come with this development. Most of our students are drawn from our main partner primary schools – Bohlevale, Bluewater, Rollingstone and St Anthony’s catholic school.
