Established in 1927 and set in 10 hectares of park-like grounds that are very conducive to study, the school emphasises the importance of the individual student by holding class sizes at 22 and providing a wide range of activities for student involvement. High moral and behaviour standards are expected and diligence and strong effort are valued.

Facilities: The school has been systematically upgraded during the past decade and students now have access to two multi-purpose sports centres, an aquatic centre, a superb library and VCE Centre and creative arts, computer, technology, food technology and music centres.

Curriculum: Huntingtower’s primary focus is academic, but there are many elective subjects. Vocational courses are also taught and ESL tuition is available if required. A full range of VCE studies is offered, including Drama and Media. The school is proud of its 100 per cent Year 12 pass rates and tertiary acceptance rates as well as the quality of its results. Indonesian is taught from Year 1 with Indonesian and French taught throughout secondary levels. An impressively equipped new technology centre is now in full operation.

Sport: Team spirit is strong and most traditional sports are played.

Extra-curricular activities: Instrumental and voice tuition, choir and madrigal groups, orchestra, string groups, concert band, drama, debating, dance, aerobics, photography, Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme and a comprehensive outdoor education program that develops leadership and independence as well as many other skills. Huntingtower’s music eisteddfod results are consistently outstanding.

Student welfare programs: Pastoral care is provided in both House and Year-Level Mentor groups. The school’s moderate size enables close contact with each student and students are expected to be well-behaved and thoughtful of others at all times.

Principal: Mr Sholto Bowen
