Welcome to the Senior School

“We have high expectations of our students and our staff. We will push students to be the very best version of themselves and we will support them every step of the way”

As our new school adventure progresses to this next significant stage of learning for our students, we are delighted to introduce the Senior School at Prahran High School, beginning in 2022.

The Senior School is a motivating and exciting time for students. These next three years are a chance to pursue passions and dreams, to be challenged deeply in learning and to begin to connect the demands of school with the myriad possibilities of the world beyond.

For many of our students, their pathway will lead them to higher education at university, for others the pathway will be scaffolded into an apprenticeship. For some students, life at school will lead directly into employment, while for others a gap-year follows, filled with further thinking and planning. For all our students, they will leave Prahran High School on a personal, unique path, celebrated and affirmed as right for them.

We have high expectations of our students and our staff. We will push students to be the very best version of themselves and we will support them every step of the way.

The Senior School is a time of change in young peoples’ lives; it is a challenging time and it is also a beautiful time of personal growth and achievement.

This introductory handbook is designed to support students and families by providing a clear sense of learning, wellbeing and opportunity in our Senior School. This handbook also serves to introduce, define and explain the language, structures, processes, policies and expectations that we need all stakeholders to understand.

The Senior School contains much that is new, and we hope this handbook is helpful and reassuring.
