Brighton Secondary School is one of Australia’s most successful co-educational government high schools and has produced highly-accomplished scholars, musicians and athletes since its establishment in 1952. With 1350 students in Years 8-12, it serves a large and diverse community in Adelaide’s south-western suburbs. It has provided some of the country’s best youth orchestras, choirs and bands, outstanding academic results (including prize winners in the sciences and mathematics), and a broad range of sporting success, including National Senior School Volleyball Champions.
