Esperance Senior High School (4018)

School Overview

Esperance Senior High School is a school with a strong community that creates opportunities for personal excellence. We live by this vision, ensuring your child reaches their full potential academically, culturally, personally and socially.

Catering for students from Years 7 to 12, our school provides strong academic and vocational pathways leading to the attainment of an Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR), Vocational Education and Training (VET) qualifications or future employment. Our broad range of programs will allow your child to achieve their best, regardless of the path they want to pursue.

We deliver a range of curriculum subjects and engaging extra-curricular activities to suit a variety of learning needs and interests. This includes opportunities in the Arts, the critical and creative thinking Tournament of Minds international competition, and local and interschool sporting competitions.

Our school offers a variety of programs to support our Aboriginal students, including the Clontarf South East (football) Academy engagement program for boys; the Stars Foundation providing mentoring support for girls; and the Follow the Dream aspirant program for students wishing to undertake university studies or further training when they complete their secondary education.

Our graduates consistently achieve above expectations in both their ATAR and VET programs. Our honour roll includes a Rhodes Scholar, volleyball Olympian, a VET Beazley Medallist, a Pride of Australia Medal for Peace recipient and more. The Esperance community is proud of our school and our many achievements.

Our strong pastoral care program aims to build resilience in our students and supports them socially and emotionally. We have a highly effective pastoral care team that includes the school psychologist, chaplain, school nurse, youth education officer, attendance and engagement officer, student support mentors and year coordinators for each year group.

Our school's extra-curricular activities include local, regional, state, interstate and overseas opportunities, including sports carnivals, subject camps, overseas tours and student exchange programs.

Our school is well supported by local businesses, organisations and clubs that have formed a strategic alliance with the school, providing several work experience and work place learning opportunities for students.

Our school comprises a multi-campus partnership with the Esperance Education Support Centre, the Esperance Residential College and the South Regional TAFE.
