Principal's welcome

Welcome to the Fig Tree Pocket State School website. Fig Tree Pocket State School was built in 1871 and is located in the Brisbane Western Suburbs and is part of the Education Queensland Metropolitan Region.

The school has a capacity of 522 students with a present enrolment of 473.  Enrolments are governed by a school enrolment management plan with a catchment area which comprises the suburb of Fig Tree Pocket.

Our school is co-educational with children attending from prep to year 6. Enrolment numbers tend to increase slightly throughout the year with new students arriving from interstate or overseas.

Our school community has high expectations for all aspects of schooling. Our students achieve outstanding academic standards and our school is recognised as one of the top performing schools in Queensland. Dedicated, experienced teachers, supported by an active parent body, work to ensure that students are provided with every opportunity achieve their best.

Fig Tree Pocket State School is located in a beautiful rural setting , enhanced by a range of quality facilities and resources, many of which are provided by our dedicated Parents’ and Citizens’ Association.

As principal, I have no hesitation in recommending Fig Tree Pocket State School to prospective parents who are looking for a school that will do everything possible to provide a caring, supportive and high quality education for all.
