Gold Creek School was established in 1998 through the amalgamation of Nicholls Junior School and the newly constructed Senior School in 1998. The school now consists of three campuses: Junior (P-6), Senior (7-10) and a Preschool facility located in the nearby suburb of Hall.
The Junior Site shares facilities with a co-located Catholic primary school, Holy Spirit School, the only such arrangement in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT). The schools share a library, gymnasium, canteen, out of school hours care service and a synthetic sports field. This joint facility has been in operation since the inception of both schools in 1996.
The Junior Site comprises preschools at Nicholls and Hall, and kindergarten to year 6 is located at 40 Kelleway Avenue, the Senior Site caters for years 7 -10 and is located at 130 Kelleway Avenue.
