Southport is the commercial hub of the northern Gold Coast. Our school, having been built on the highest land in Southport, enjoys 360 degree views taking in the gold of the coast and the green of the hinterland.

The school has been operating for over 90 years. It officially opened on its present site on 24th January 1955.

At Southport High we understand how important it is that all students are genuinely engaged in their own learning. For example, our Middle School program in year 8 accentuates the styles of learning which offer the best transition from Primary School. And in our Senior School, our teachers build learning relationships which reach out to the needs of young adults.
