Welcome Tannum Sands State High School

Welcome to the Tannum Sands State High School community. Our school is situated 2kms from Tannum Sands Beach and 25kms south of Gladstone. Our school has an excellent reputation in ensuring each student achieves their best with specially developed academic and vocational programs.

Our school offers a range of subjects and activities to ensure students develop academically and socially. We have high numbers of students enrol in our science programs (physics, chemistry and biology) and industrial technology programs (engineering, construction and furnishing) while maintaining a strong focus in the arts, humanities and physical education.

Tannum Sands State High School has the highest number of OP1 students graduates in the region. Over 50% of our students are OP eligible which is consistently above the state average. Equally impressive are the number of vocational off-site learning options that have students learning on big industry sites such as Boyne Smelter Limited and NRG Power Station.

Our non-curriculum activities are extremely popular amongst students and include an annual school musical, school marching band and orchestra, human powered vehicles, zenith (gifted program) and interschool sports.​
