Our school

Nestled in between the inner-city suburb of Paddington and the Brisbane CBD, Petrie Terrace State School offers a family friendly, small school setting of approximately 200 students for students in Prep-Year 6.  Adopting the principles of inclusive and student centred learning, students achieve in alignment with their individual needs and potential.  Academic achievement is supported through close relationships with parents and our teaching and support team.

The school continues to enjoy high academic achievements and a dynamic and valued Music and Arts Culture.  Unique to our school is the Peer Support Program a nationally recognised critical thinking and philosophy approach, Kitchen Gardens Program and shared and devolved Student Leadership and the MindUp Curriculum. The start of each academic year commences with our Learning to Learn program incorporating Mind-Up and Cultures of Thinking. We underpin all our programs on evidence based practices and globally recognised educational research. 

Many of our students progress into school scholarship and excellence programs at local private and state secondary schools. We have been acknowledged at a state level for the academic gains our students make whilst enrolled at our school.
