THORNBURY HIGH SCHOOL


At Thornbury High School, education focuses on student achievement and personal excellence. The school values diversity, truth and integrity, innovation and initiative, service, excellence, determination and effort.

Facilities: Thornbury High has first-class facilities incorporating cutting-edge learning technology infrastructure. There is a gymnasium, four networked computer rooms, TV studio, library, whole-school internet access, music centre and a drama/theatre complex. The college is known across the state for its music, TV, radio and multimedia programs.

Curriculum: Developing the essential skills and attributes for students to achieve at the senior level starts in Year 7 and continues to build through that critical stage of Years 9 and 10. In Years 7 and 8, the structure will emphasise literacy and numeracy through engaging curriculum. Year 10 is linked to VCE with the opportunity for acceleration and a wider choice of subjects. The mean study score in Year 12 is 28. The college has also recognised the need to provide a high achievers’ program in Years 7 to 9, to extend and challenge the school’s most able students.

Sport: Students can be involved in a wide range of school, inter-school sport and outdoor education activities.

Extra-curricular activities: The school has a very successful music program. There are opportunities for all students to participate in activities beyond the classroom such as peer support, student leadership and debating. There are year-level camps once every two years and a curriculum-based excursions program. The school has sister schools in China, Italy and Greece.

Student welfare programs: The college is divided into four sub-schools — Year 7, Year 8, Years 9 and 10, and Years 11 and 12 — to ensure effective student management and pastoral care. An annual bullying survey is completed by all students and the college deals swiftly and severely with student harassment. All students are required to wear the college uniform.
