Trafalgar High School

Trafalgar High School, with a student enrolment of approximately 800, is situated in a pleasant environment between the Strzelecki Ranges and Mount Baw Baw. Located on a large, attractive site adjacent to Trafalgar Primary School, this unique rural setting nurtures a strong school identity based on wide community support, providing a stable, caring environment in which each individual attains a sense of identity and self-worth. Many students travel to the school by bus or train from well beyond the local area.

Our vision at Trafalgar High School is to provide a caring, supportive and challenging learning environment where all students have the opportunity to achieve and develop as lifelong learners who actively participate in their community.

Our values provide the platform for all relationships and interactions within our community.

Integrity – ensuring that all members of the school community act with responsibility, fairness, respect and trust in all their interactions with others in our community.
Collaboration – ensuring that in our work we apply all our efforts in a way that is inclusive, tolerant, supportive and team focused.
Aspiration – that as a school we continually strive to achieve our best, identify the value of continuous improvement, recognizing and rewarding success and achievement throughout our school.
Excellence – as a school we will investigate, research and apply knowledge and processes that create a culture of best practice.
In addition, a Select Entry Accelerated Learning Program (SEALP), established in 1997, enables selected students to cover an enriched Years 7 – 10 curriculum, potentially in only three years. Many SEALP students choose to remain in this program into Year 10, however, undertaking some VCE units in the process. The school seeks to offer the broadest VCE curriculum possible each year. The VCE Vocational Major (VM) is available to Years 11 and 12 students more suited to ‘hands-on’ work. Aiding is available to students assessed as having learning difficulties.

Camps, outdoor education, excursions, LOTE study tours, work education and career advice, further enrich the curriculum across a range of year levels. Generally, our school leavers successfully enter adult life by joining the work force or pursuing further studies. VCE results have been consistently above the state average, as has success in a range of sports, national competitions, and musical endeavors. An active Student Representative Council encourages student support and ownership of the curriculum.
