Design progressing on new high school for Brighton

Work is continuing on Brighton’s new high school, with recently released design concepts showing off modern and stylish new facilities to support the needs of learners and their families.

The designs have been developed by Hobart architecture firm Jaws Architects. The release of the artist renders is the next step in the detailed design phase. This follows the community consultation that was held before and after the release of the site master plan last year.

The high school’s facilities will include a gym and performing arts space, commercial-style kitchen, outdoor learning areas, and extensive off-street parking. The Department of Education continues to work closely with the Brighton Council on the development and planning for the new high school, including the public infrastructure needed to support it. The new high school will cater for up to 600 students across Years 7 to 12 and will support the education needs of the growing Brighton community into the future.

The tender for construction is expected to be released later this year, with works set to commence in early 2023. Brighton High School will then welcome its first students through its doors in 2025.
