Principal's Welcome

Nestled in the beautiful Adelaide Hills, Heathfield High School is in an idyllic setting for local and international students, just 15 minutes from central Adelaide, yet surrounded by bushland that abounds with native flora and fauna.

Built in 1963, our school quickly grew to earn a reputation for its commitment to and achievement of excellence in education. This reputation continues to grow, as the school demands the best from both its teachers and students. At Heathfield students can: expect to be challenged, expect to be encouraged and expect to be the best they can be.

Choosing a secondary school is one of the most important decisions parents, carers and students will ever make. Schools are in the privileged position of helping to shape young people’s lives. At Heathfield we are passionate about supporting your child’s growth as an individual, equipping them with the skills and knowledge that will support and guide them into their future pathways at their highest possible potential.

As one of only two High schools in South Australia Identified as a STEM lead school, we are committed to innovation and excellence in teaching and learning. Our goal is to develop students who are creative and critical thinkers. Staff at Heathfield are outward looking, reflective and continue to learn together, adapting their teaching methodologies to accelerate our young people’s learning and sharing their experiences with other schools from across the state.

Our high level academic achievements, vocational training and extra-curricular activities on offer at Heathfield High School are extensive, and give our students the skills needed to challenge themselves across a range of disciplines.
