Welcome to Brooks High School
Brooks High School maintains a significant place in the history of Launceston. In 1948 it opened as the GV Brooks Community School. It was built in park-like surrounds on the original Newnham site. A feature of the grounds was a large blue gum tree which became a significant meeting place for students and staff and was the venue for outdoor assemblies. In 1990 with the development of the University of Tasmanian adjacent to the grounds, Brooks High School was rebuilt on the current Rocherlea site. Once again magnificent park-like grounds are a feature of the school with buildings spread out across the site. Brooks continues the tradition of “community” with its strong connections with past students and families a highlight; and to the business and local communities through the ongoing focus on Positive Futures (previously known as the No Dole Programme).
We extend the warmest of invitations to you to visit our beautiful school.
