Glenmore High School was established in 1975 as Rockhampton’s third State High School, serving the growing community on the north-side of Rockhampton. It adjoins the Glenmore State School and enjoys close links as a total educational campus - preschool to Year 12.
The student population of approximately 615 is drawn from a broad cross section of the community. Glenmore has an apparent progression rate of 76.2 for years 10 to 12 compared to the State rate of 75. Our proximity to the Central Queensland University brings to us students with English as a second language, whose parents are studying at the university.
Glenmore High School is situated in a pleasantly landscaped environment. It has a heated swimming pool, basketball courts, an Indoor Activities Centre for sporting programs and drama productions, dance studio and a weights room and athletics oval. Excellent networked computer facilities with over 176 computers forming the core of I.T. for all curriculum areas. Our construction court in Manual Arts, our Business and Information Technology Centre and our kitchen facilities support a wide range of vocational education programs.
The school is designed to provide access for wheelchair students, through a lift, ramps, walkways and a wheelchair taxi set down area.
