With a long and proud history dating from 1875, the school's first ever Year 12 candidates completed their Higher School Certificate examinations in 2008.
For several years, the school has been a recipient of additional equity funding and these resources enable staff and community to work together to create innovative programs of support for students, regardless of their age or background, within a caring and supportive environment.

We will set aspirational targets and ask all key stakeholders to work towards and beyond these, engaging the power of high expectations and research-based practice.
