Welcome to Devonport High School

Our Mission: Challenge every learner in a safe and supportive environment.

Devonport High School is proud of its heritage. Built in 1916, the original building remains. The school is located in the heart of its namesake and has a reputation for its local and international students’ outstanding achievements.

The culture is one of high expectations and a commitment to continuous growth with an expectation that every student will learn and achieve positive outcomes. Our students, staff and school community are guided by the values of aspiration, courage, growth and respect. We aspire to a culture where our whole school community reflects a strong sense of belonging and pride in the school.  The wellbeing and learning needs of our students and families is a priority and we are strongly committed to creating an environment that supports students to thrive, be resilient and engaged in their work or learning. We value parents as partners in their children’s learning. 

An $11 million redevelopment at Devonport High School, completed in 2022, has delivered state of the art facilities with contemporary learning spaces. The physical environment has empowered students and teachers to move away from traditional classroom settings to explore best practice for the 21st century to impact engagement and learning. The redevelopment has enhanced the plan and design principles for systematic curriculum delivery, primarily learner voice and agency. We promote learning for life and endeavour to equip students with the attributes and dispositions that enable them to take responsibility for and be empowered in their own learning. We deliver a rich curriculum differentiated by teachers to enable, consolidate and extend student’s learning.

The school’s population supports an intimate learning environment where every student is well known by staff and allows individual talents and aspirations to be nurtured through a wide range of academic programs and challenges, extra-curricular activities and alternate learning environments.
