Principal's Welcome

Welcome to the website of Pimlico State High School. If you are already a member of our school community, I trust that you find our website to be a rich and useful source of information about our great school. If, on the other hand, this is your first introduction to our school, I hope that it is the beginning of a new and lasting relationship with our community.
Pimlico has a strong and proud tradition of academic excellence and of service to the community. A Pimlico education strives to develop young people of purpose, responsibility, resilience, compassion and innovation. We seek to make a difference in the lives of our students so that, in turn, they can make a positive and profound difference in our community and our world.  That is why at Pimlico we are committed to making a world of difference.
Established in 1959, Pimlico is proudly part of Queensland's state school system. Public education provides opportunities for all to excel, regardless of personal circumstance. Public education is about universal excellence, access to education, being part of the community and valuing diversity. 
Pimlico's status as an Independent Public School enables our school community to exercise the autonomy and local decision-making needed to drive innovation while still enjoying the benefits of being part of a state-wide public education system.
As one of only 40 schools within Australia and approximately 600 worldwide accredited with the prestigious Council of International Schools, Pimlico is committed to providing a truly world-class education. Our CIS accreditation demonstrates our commitment both to internationalism and to meeting international benchmarks in educational excellence and continuous improvement.
Pimlico's curriculum and our vision for learning embrace the notions of global citizenship and international mindedness. We are preparing students for a globalised world and a future that will see our graduates working and contributing on the international stage. 
Pimlico is renowned for the excellence of our performing arts programs, particularly within instrumental music. We are proud of the music enrichment opportunities that are available to our talented musicians, with over 400 students participating in our extensive instrumental and vocal programs.
I invite you to learn more about our great school and about how being a Pimlico Scholar can help prepare you as a successful life-long learner and a confident and caring global citizen, ready to make a world of difference.
