About Us

Shirley High School has been under new leadership since September 2019.

Shirley High School is a proud, multicultural school with an established reputation of integrity and excellence.  Our school is at the heart of a vibrant and diverse community, with over 1000 students benefiting from our fabulous site and leafy surroundings.  Along with our clear vision and values  this helps to create a positive learning environment for both students and staff. 

We have high expectations in all we do and believe that all our students can be the best in the world at whatever they decide to pursue through living the values that underpin our school.  We teach our students to display compassion, creativity, relentless drive, resilience, high aspirations and, at all times, to be respectful.  We strive for excellence through a broad curriculum and a wide range of extra-curricular opportunities and aim to develop both students and staff equally in and out of the classroom.

As a school, we are totally committed to ensuring that all students can access, engage and more importantly enjoy education. Our curriculum is designed to be diverse, modern and ambitious.  A curriculum that supports all our students to be successful global citizens with the skills, knowledge and confidence to have a positive impact on our community.  Inclusion is at the heart of our curriculum and it recognises our vibrant, culturally rich and diverse cohort.  We understand and value the power of education and have taken great strides over the last 18 months to rebuild and redesign our teaching and learning expectations. Shirley is a dynamic school focussed on solutions that bring out the best in all within our community.
