About Our School
At Thornbury High School we champion innovation and academic excellence in a supportive, inclusive environment. Our extensive academic and co-curricular program aims to foster and inspire respectful, resilient young people ready to face a rapidly-changing world.
Every day we challenge our students to achieve the very limit of their potential and support them through our stage-based curriculum model and culture of high expectations. We push them to engage their talents outside the classroom through an expansive range of opportunities in sports, music and the arts, our state-of-the-art facilities, and student leadership positions. We support them pastorally by investing heavily in student management, our sub-schools and our dedicated wellbeing centre. And we encourage them to connect with our local and global communities through our international students program, our partnership with Croxton Special School and our engaged alumni network.
We are proud to have served Thornbury and the families of Darebin and Banyule since 1962, with our students also travelling from Northcote, Preston, Bellfield, Reservoir, Heidelberg and Fairfield. We invite you to visit the school and learn more about what we do.
