Since 2015, the school has been accredited under the Council of International Schools (CIS). This rigorous quality assurance process involves 5 yearly evaluations of all aspects of the school; from the school Vision statement to teaching and learning and to finances and facilities.
Welcome to the Woodville High School educational community. Our school recently celebrated one hundred years of producing proud scholars in a proud community since 1915. We have a well-established and active Old Scholars Association which takes pride in the successes and achievements of our current students. These successes reflect the school's long standing motto "Ad Astra per Aspera"; Reach for the stars, despite adversity. We both value the traditions of the school and resource our students' access to contemporary educational opportunities for learning. Our professional teaching and ancillary staff are highly skilled in their subject areas and support students' academic success across an extensive range of subjects.
In addition, we host a Special Interest Music Centre. Entry into this highly regarded program is through application and audition. All students benefit from the creativity this special facility provides. With Music as the flagship of the school's commitment to creativity, the Head of Music collaborates with specialist teachers in the performing and visual arts. Wellbeing is at the heart of learning. Woodville High School is widely recognised for its attention to student wellbeing. The school's strategic improvement plan highlights the role of relationships in effective learning. Student leadership is a core part of school decision making and is nurtured through specific programs such as Youth Opportunities and the Peer support program. School Captains, as significant role models, work closely with the Principal to advocate for student views, run assemblies and represent the school on formal occasions.
Woodville High School graduates are advantaged as emerging global citizens through the diversity of cultures represented in the school population. Students' understanding of their place in Australia is grounded in an appreciation of Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander histories and perspectives. Global perspectives also inform subject content and students are encouraged to develop intercultural understanding through pastoral care programs. I am proud to be the Principal of Woodville High School. We invite you to explore our website for more information about our school community and what we offer. The school community looks forward to welcoming Year 7 students in 2022.
