Governor Stirling Senior High School (4020)

School Overview

Our students enjoy a positive and supportive learning environment responsive to their particular abilities and learning style. We believe in an educational experience that promotes respect, hard work and achievement where every child is encouraged to become a person of honour and integrity.

Our experienced staff encourage our students to imagine the possibilities, create opportunities and achieve their dreams in a safe learning environment. Our school motto of 'Honour before Honours' underpins our approach to teaching and learning.

To enrich the learning experience of each student, we offer a variety of programs including Gifted & Talented Education, Approved Specialist Programs in Engineering, Arts Media and Australian Rules Football together with programs in Netball, Dance, Music, Aboriginal Education and nationally-accredited vocational certificates.

We have a proud history of academic and sporting excellence with a school alumni of Olympians, football stars and State champions, entrepreneurs and authors, parliamentarians and community leaders, who have all shaped the future of this state.

Rebuilt in 2012 the new school provides students with access to quality state-of-the-art facilities, specialist teachers with industry experience and links to various tertiary and industry bodies.
