Welcome from our Principal
It is my pleasure to welcome you to Glossop High School, a wonderful place for young people to grow and learn.
Students are challenged to perform to their best ability, our vision statement is
“Our School’s pride, innovation and excellence will lead to learning, independence and success for all of our students”
Our vision for all students, being underpinned by our high expectations and values of
Determination | Safety | Respect | Learning
At Glossop High School we provide all our students with a comprehensive education to prepare them for active citizenship. We have high expectations within a safe supportive environment.
We are a two-campus school – with Years 8-10 at the Middle Campus, students enjoying facilities on the original Glossop site and Years 11 and 12 students in the Senior Campus in Berri.
We take great pride within our quality teaching and learning and this is our driving force within all that we do. We are a visible learning school and from 2020 will be embarking in whole school training within Berry Street Education Model. We have a refreshed focus on whole school initiative and common training and development.
Our 2019-2021 School Improvement Goals are
- Increase student achievement in reading comprehension
- Increase student achievement in numeracy
- Increase the percentage of students who complete SACE or are on a positive post school pathway.
While we have a strong focus on academic rigor, we also know that student wellbeing and student leadership are foundational aspects of the school curriculum. Our student leadership body, elected each year by their peers, provides welcomed and valued student voice.
A regular school newsletter is also produced that contains comprehensive news and information about the school and student learning. Parent input into whole school planning and decision-making is actively pursued and I encourage any parent community member to nominate to join our governing council.
On behalf of the staff at Glossop High School, I would like to take this opportunity to provide you with any assistance that you may need. The school has a proud history dating back more than 75 years and we are looking forward to continuing our success of providing quality education to all students.
