Burnie High School is a public, co-educational, high school, located in Cooee, a suburb of Burnie, Tasmania, Australia.

In April 2007, the old, original Burnie High School building located in Burnie itself was gutted by fire. The old school had been built in 1929 and following the fire, many of its remains had to be demolished for safety reasons. The building had been due to become the new home of the Creative Paper company and the new Burnie Visitor Centre. Instead a new building was built on the site in the years following the fire. [1]

Burnie High School is located behind Cooee Primary School in Fidler Street Cooee. Other high schools located in the area are Parklands High School, Wynyard High School and Marist Regional College.


Every second year Burnie High School puts on a production. 2007's production was Gumshoe: The Spy Musical, which was also performed by Burnie High School in 1997. Other past musical productions undertaken by the school include: How the West was Warped, Sheik Rattle 'n' Roll, Zombied, Jungle Fantasy and Bats.
