A request for tender has been issued to engage the building contractor to deliver the new Brighton High School – a major milestone for Tasmania’s single biggest public education infra­structure project in a decade.

The new high school is part of the State Government’s commitment to support the Brighton community, which is projected to be one of the fastest growing regions over the next 20 years. Extensive community and stakeholder consultation has helped shape develop­ment of the new high school, which will accommodate up to 600 students and include a multi-purpose hall, performing arts space and gymnasium.

The school’s design was de­veloped by Jaws Architecture and K2LD in partnership with the Department for Education, Children and Young People, and the Brighton Council.

The primary feeder school arrangements for the new high school are being finalised following feedback from key stakeholders, and these ar­rangements will be announced soon.

Building works are expected to begin in early 2023, and subject to the outcome of the tender process, the school will be completed in late 2024 and operational in 2025.

The new high school is part of a record investment in new education infrastructure for the Brighton community, with the $4.3 million redevelopment of the Jordan River School Farm recently completed.
