New Schools and Campuses Service

The number of school-aged children in Queensland has been forecast to increase from around 800,000 in 2016 to nearly 1.1 million in 2036 (Source: Queensland Treasury 2015 Medium Series Projections). Capacity will need to be increased to cater for an estimated additional 263,000 students over this 20 year period (or some 13,000 extra each year).

  • Advice on the necessary approvals to operate a new school/campus
  • Information on applying for approvals
