Our School

We are an ACT Government High School situated in the Belconnen suburb of Macquarie. We cater for students from year 7 to 10.

Our aim is to help all students achieve their potential, building on their abilities and interests while celebrating their cultural backgrounds.

We provide a traditional secondary school structure underpinned by specialist teachers. The modern curriculum we provide has opportunities for extension and extracurricular activities.

We have been serving the ACT community since 1938 and have a long tradition of excellence. Our students can enrich themselves in academic, creative, sporting and leadership areas.

The values that guide us are: Community Attitude Respect Excellence Safety.
