Brooks opened its doors of the original site in 1948. The school was built around a large blue gum where assemblies were held. After the University of Tasmania incorporated the grounds in 1990, a new school was built on the fringe of the northern suburbs. This followed the original idea with large open spaces and many separate buildings in a garden setting. The school is coeducational with around 630 students drawn from Ravenswood, Invermay, Mayfield, Mowbray, Newnham, Rocherlea and the East Tamar rural areas.
