Northam Senior High School offers the unique opportunity for students to experience a truly rural Australian education in a quiet and safe country town whilst maintaining close proximity to the city of Perth.
The school was the first senior high school to be established outside of the metropolitan area; it has beautiful heritage listed buildings that date back to the 1920's and is steeped in core traditions.
The school has a proud academic record with recent tertiary results being some of the best in the state. The Northam Senior High School motto is ‘achievement’. The school believes that with hard work, in a supportive and encouraging environment, all can achieve. Achievement is strongly acknowledged, increasing self-worth and highlighting the important role it plays for individuals and the wider community.
There are a full range of courses offered for students aiming at university entrance or for those who are vocationally oriented. It is possible for students to study combinations of subjects as the timetable is structured to allow for maximum flexibility.
