Principal’s Message

Warrandyte High School is a great school. It has strong links with its local community. A beautiful, natural setting just 20 km from the heart of Melbourne and a well-earned reputation for excellence across a broad range of curricula and extra-curricular offerings.

Our school values are Excellence, Integrity and Respect. This means we continually focus on High Expectations; Authentic Relationships; Student Voice and consistent Teaching and Learning Protocols.

We believe that all learners can continually grow without limits. The key to this is self-belief, quality instruction, student agency, emotional and physical wellbeing, and appropriate challenge. As educators we want our students to value challenge and recognise the rewards that a strong work ethic brings.

Our teachers are passionate and dedicated to achieving the best possible learning outcomes for our students. They embrace the philosophy of life-long learning and work in professional learning teams to develop and implement relevant and innovative learning programs.

At Warrandyte High School, students are encouraged to challenge themselves academically and physically, and to pursue areas of individual interest:

  • Our Year 10 students have access to all our VCE subjects for the purposes of Breadth, Extension and Acceleration.
  • Our Head Start Program offers School Based Apprenticeships and Traineeships to our senior students.
  • We have an Elite Sports Academy which offers Basketball and AFL Football Programs for boys and girls across all year levels.
  • From 2022 we will also be offering a Select Entry “Learning Excellence Academic/Acceleration Program” (LEAP)
