Williamstown High School is a dynamic multi-campus community catering for 1500 students. We are located just 9 Km from Melbourne in the beautiful bayside suburb of Williamstown.

Our school provides an outstanding learning environment that is both inspiring and nurturing. Our focus on individual growth and success, together with our emphasis on support and connection, encourages students to “Be Safe, Be Respectful and Be a Learner”. Our students are provided with many opportunities to excel, these include general academic excellence, accelerated learning, international studies, sport, visual and performing arts, debating, leadership, social justice, environmental issues and a strong marine science and instrumental music program.

The Bayview Street campus is the setting for Years 7, 8 and 9. There is a new, state of the art building which has allowed us to run as an environmentally sustainable school. The spacious surroundings and proximity to the Bay make this site ideal for the Middle Years. The focus of the Middle Years campus is to ensure students successfully transition from primary school and are quickly engaged by a range of diverse, challenging and inclusive activities. 

It was a combination of perfect location and a passion for the environment that inspired the development of a marine education centre on this site. Students are exposed to the complexities of marine science throughout their early and middle years journey. Those with a thirst for all things aquatic can join our marine club and immerse themselves deeper into the marine realm.

Our Mission: “To inspire the community to conserve our amazing marine ecosystem through education programs that engender excitement, pride and knowledge of Victoria’s marine environment.”

The historical Pasco St. site provides a setting for Year 10 and VCE students to have access to a broad and varied curriculum with modern facilities and resources to enhance student learning opportunities. Here our students have access to a range of Year 10 electives, VCE, VET and VCAL certificates that allows each individual the opportunity to create a three year program that will see them well prepared for success in whatever pathway they wish to pursue. A successful International Students Program operates with students from many countries enrolling to study.
