With Highfields being one of the fastest growing communities in our region it was essential for the community to have a local high school. So we committed $35 million over three years from 2012-13 to build the much wanted new Secondary College, with stage one of the High School catering for up to 260 Year 7 and 8 junior secondary students in the 2015 school year. Further stages for years 9 and 10 in 2016-17, and for years 11 and 12 in 2018-19, will accommodate an estimated 1000 students, giving students access to the best possible high school education, right here in our community.

So whatever their chosen path, whether through trade, starting a business, family or furthering their education… the Highfields State Secondary College will nurture and educate tomorrow’s workforce, leaders and innovators.
