Principal’s welcome

Corrine McMillan, PrincipalWelcome to a school community where pride and spirit underpin academic excellence.  Cavendish Road State High is a select public school which has achieved international recognition in the academic and sporting arenas.  We are a full uniform school.  Cavendish Road High is a modern and dynamic high school where tradition embraces innovation.  A strong culture of learning is evident across the school with high expectations for all students and staff.  Our vision is to achieve and celebrate success through a commitment to individual excellence.  As a community we value: cooperation, courtesy, commitment, consideration and challenge (known as the “5 C’s”).

Whilst we enjoy some of the best facilities and offer a wide range of acceleration and excellence programs in Mathematics, Science, Music, Football, Touch and Netball, the greatest aspect of Cavendish Road High School is the positive environment afforded to every child.  Traditional values and high expectations ensure success and happiness for every student.

Our students are warm, welcoming and genuine young people who are provided with many and varied local, national and international learning opportunities by a very committed and hardworking teaching team. Our Principal is an award winning Principal, named one of Queensland’s Most Inspiring Women in 2013, a 2013 Queensland College of Teachers Excellence in Leadership Award winner and a recipient of the 2014 Australian Council of Educational Leadership Fellowship Award. 

Our students espouse the personal qualities that are absolutely essential for achieving individual success. All students, with the support of their teachers, families and the school community will continue to achieve outstanding results in the coming years.
