Welcome. We are glad you are here.

Geraldton Senior High School caters for students in Years 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12 enabling young people to complete their entire secondary education at our school.

Our belief is that every child is unique with experience, learning styles and goals. From this we provide a broad comprehensive education with pathways leading to attainment of an Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR), Vocational Education and Training (VET) qualifications or future employment. We encourage each student to participate in a range of state and national competitions, and to take up extra-curricular activities in music, drama, dance and sport.

Our highly experienced teaching and support staff are passionate about the learning and development of your children. We encourage critical thinking and problem solving skills. We promote positive behaviour by embedding our values of ‘Respect, Responsibility and Doing Your Best’ in all activities, whether in or out of the classroom. We use the latest teaching methods and combine real-life, relevant examples and experience so students can relate to the work they do and are better prepared after they successfully complete their schooling. All students have access to technologies and resources (such as notebook computers and tablets) to fulfil this goal.

We offer a range of high-level courses and programs, from mathematics and science, to STEM education and aquaculture. Our large arts area offers photography, music, digital graphics and visual arts with our dance program being unique to our region. Our VET program enables apprenticeships, traineeships and other programs. Our fully equipped technologies area allows students to study an array of hands-on programs from building and construction to boating and mechanics. Our on-site Trade Training Centre provides programs in laboratory skills, engineering, electro-technology and meta science.

We offer a number of specialised programs including literacy and numeracy support, and engagement programs. We also have optional language and cultural programs for male and female Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students. Our Special Education Needs program provides an extensive range of enrichment activities that provide opportunities for students who need additional support.

Geraldton Senior High School is highly regarded within the Geraldton community. We consider our meaningful relationships between teachers, students and their families vital to each student’s ‘success at school’.

Contributions & Associated Costs.

2021 Contributions and Associated Costs

Geraldton Senior High School has a vision that is based around providing students with great opportunities through the wide range of curriculum offerings available at the School. This is made possible through parents/caregivers supporting the School by paying their annual charges and contributions.

Invoices for the 2021 school year have now been issued to families and outline the financial commitment associated with your child’s education based on their course selections.

All 2021 year specific Course Contributions and Associated costs can be found in the following booklets:

Year 7 – 10 Contributions & Associated Costs 2021

Year 11 Contributions & Associated Costs 2021

Year 12 Contributions & Associated Costs 2021

While a high standard of instruction will continue to be provided, it is critical to the range and quality of student facilities, services and opportunities, and is also vital to our programming and planning, that all contributions and charges are paid.
