Glossop High School opened in 1941 and over the ensuring years has become a valued part of its local community. The school has a multicultural population with approximately 15 nationalities represented. There are 91 students of NESB and 63 of Aboriginal descent.

The school is now located on two campuses. The Middle School Campus on the original site at Glossop is comprised of around 410 Year 8-10 students. There are three distinct teaching areas – each consists of a laboratory and three general classrooms. This supports the “small learning community” ethos that is central to our middle-schooling program. The Senior Campus of about 290 Year 11-12+ students, which is located immediately adjacent to the Murray Institute of TAFE (Berri Campus), has developed a close and productive liaison with that Institute. A feature of this initiative is this introduction of a range of VET courses extended widely across all curriculum areas. The Riverland Trade School of the Future is located at the senior Campus. Glossop is the lead school for this Trade School and is also the lead school for the Trade Training Centre.
