Principal’s welcome

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to our school website, and indeed to our school. 

Smithfield State High School is such a good school. It is a privilege to be the Principal. We achieve quality outcomes, offer an extensive range of curriculum subjects and strive to see every student meet with success.

I am proud of our Year 12 outcomes, which regularly exceed State averages. We have a proud record of students achieving high academic success, with over 30% of our Year 12 leavers entering University. We also see many of our students achieving Vocational awards, moving to successful career pathways.
We offer a caring and supportive environment for all our students. We will not shy away from our responsibility to look after and develop positive, active, thinking, young Australians.

In our website you will find all the information you need, whether it is for enrolment, to contact one of our staff or to know more about our specialist Academies.
Smithfield State High School has received many accolades for its recent success. We operate as an Independent Public School and through the Tropical North Learning Academy work closely with our feeder Primary Schools, in particular Trinity Beach State School, and with James Cook University.

We are also proud to offer an International Student Program as a member of the Queensland Schools International network.

I hope you enjoy browsing our website. I am confident you will find Smithfield State
High School a great school!
