Welcome to Hornby High School


Hornby High School is a place where student learning and success matter. At our school every student is known and valued as an individual, and personalised pathways – academic, cultural, sporting – are created.

As a community based school our vision is to be ‘A centre of creative excellence’. We endeavour to embed creativity in every aspect of our daily work and life whether visual arts and technology or languages, school management or touch rugby, music or chemistry. Our increasingly technological world demands new and creative thinking if we are to equip our young people with the critical, creative and collaborative thinking skills that they will require to thrive when robotics and artificial intelligence take over so many routine tasks in the work force.

We are proud to be a diverse, friendly school and a place where the needs of each individual student are at the forefront of everything we do. We are proud to be a school where all students can make their mark and set their direction for life after secondary school.
