Learning — Inspired

Join our French Bilingual Binational Program Team

Principal’s Welcome.

Highgate School is situated in Highgate, an established eastern suburb of the city of Adelaide, South Australia, approximately 6km from the city centre. The school was opened on 23rd July 1923, celebrating its centenary last year. In 2024, we have approx. 600 students across Reception – Year 6.

Highgate is a highly progressive, internationally minded, future-focused school. We offer a highly engaging mainstream program, alongside a LabelFranc accredited, bilingual/binational French program and in 2024, an Intensive English Program.  We also have a growing number of international students and a multilingual staff team. All of our learning pathways incorporate strong programs in languages, STEM, music and sports. The school is currently working towards full accreditation in the IB Primary Years Program and hopes to achieve this in the first half of 2024. Our teaching and learning programs embed inquiry pedagogies and student agency, taught through a trans-disciplinary approach and showcased through various events during the year.

Our Strategic Plan is focused on four key areas: Learning, Community, Wellbeing and Environment. Governing Council works closely with the school to engage community voice and maintain a continuous improvement journey. Highgate School enjoys strong community and staff support and our school values of Honesty, Integrity, Respect and Kindness are embedded in everything that we do. We promote inclusion and wellbeing and have a range of different approaches and programs that support social and emotional development, as well as academic learning.

We have recently completed a significant redevelopment and opened two new buildings, as well as several new play spaces.

If you have any questions or would like further information, please do not hesitate to contact us.

I look forward to welcoming you on a Principal’s Tour – book here.
