Education Queensland ensures that Prep -Year 12 students are guaranteed enrolment at their nearest school and supports the efficient management of local area facilities based on service delivery standards.
The local catchment area is defined by the equidistant boundary based on trafficable routes between one school and its neighbouring school/s. Minor adjustments are negotiated at the school level to meet local road access and entry points.
James Nash and Gympie State High Schools recognise their primary obligation - the provision of access to an appropriate educational service for students whose principal place of residence is within the school's catchment area.
Find out more about the School's catchment area using the EdMap.
Please visit the James Nash Enrolment Management Plan for further details specific to James Nash SHS.
Programs of Excellence
The school's Programs of Excellence are supported through the allocation of a defined number of places. Places in the Programs of Excellence will only be available to out-of-catchment enrolments once the demand for in-catchment enrolment has been met and sufficient Student Enrolment Capacity has been reserved for future in-catchment growth. Currently James Nash State High School has the capacity to enrol:
· 225 students in Rugby Union;
· 85 students in Extension Program; and
· 77 students in Academy of Creative Arts
