Principal's message

Welcome to Kellyville High School,

Kellyville High School, located on the land of the Dharug People in the Hills Shire of north-western Sydney, is a coeducational comprehensive school of 850 students (10% from non-English speaking backgrounds) with an Inclusive Education Faculty of 42 students and 10 students identifying as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders.

Opening in 2003, the school committed to delivering quality teaching and learning to all students under the three principles of “Learning, Excellence and Integrity.” The logo design symbolically reflects the entry into one stage of development and the exit into the next part of life. The colours chosen are those from the local area of the Kellyville community.

From 2021, a Middle and Senior School structure was introduced to support students and staff in developing a productive and inclusive learning environment. Middle School - Years 7, 8 and 9 – has a focus on wellbeing, Literacy, Numeracy, school culture, adapting to high school systems and expectations and building partnerships with our local Primary Schools. The two key transition points are year 6 to 7 and year 9 to 10. Senior school – Years 10,11 and 12 – has a focus on wellbeing, academic rigour, school to work or Tertiary studies, citizenship and building partnerships with outside agencies. There are transition points in Years 10, 11 and 12 reflecting the individual goals of students.

The learning and wellbeing of all students is underpinned by a strong, proactive and supportive Wellbeing team that ensures all students and staff are valued and cared for and have access to emotional and social support. This support is extended to include our Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) framework to instil the school values of Aspirational, Respectful and Resilient students, staff and parents/carers.

Students are offered a wide range of co-curricular activities focusing on the creative and performing arts, debating, sport, the environment, student leadership and Duke of Edinburgh Program. All individual year groups have committed to a charity of their choice to support through fundraising.

The school has strong collaborative relationships with our local partner Primary schools, P & C and the broader community.

Our current Strategic Improvement Plan for 2021-2024 is focused on 3 directions: Student Growth and Attainment; Leading Learning and Connectedness. Through the implementation of these directions and ongoing feedback and evaluation, the school is committed to setting challenging and achievable learning goals for all students, delivered consistently by teachers in a culture of high expectations.
