Pimlico State High School

Regional School

Pimlico State High School is one of the largest high schools in North Queensland. It offers its students a world-class educational experience.

Students can explore topics such as climate change and global warming, sustainability, access and quality of water or population growth, as well as biotechnology and ethics. Pimlico is also one of 20 Australian founding schools involved in the Plan for the Planet initiative of the Australian National University.

Pimlico State High School has an excellent reputation nationally for its performing arts programs, particularly in the field of instrumental music. Several hundred students participate in the extensive instrumental and vocal programs. A highlight of the program is the annual Variety Concert presented by Pimlico. In most years, over 300 students perform on stage. The high level of artistic performance is also made possible by the company’s own Centre for Performing Arts, which is very well equipped. This is where the big concerts take place, but also many other musical events. A 3.5 million dollar expansion is currently being completed. This includes new classrooms, practice rooms, instrument storage, rehearsal facilities and a small performance space.

Pimlico State High offers sailing as an after-school activity in Term 1. All interested parties are welcome, regardless of whether they are experienced sailors or completely new to sailing. Pimlico has its own fleet of “Pacer” dinghies for practice and competitions.
