Welcome to our school, Colyton High School, proudly celebrating our 50th year as a trusted and valued member of the Colyton community.  As a key member of the Colyton Learning Community, we have produced successful middle school programs with partner primary schools, successfully supporting the transition of our local primary school students through to high school. Through building a genuine partnership with our students, staff, families and our broader school community, we strive to cultivate and nurture a learning community that enables our students to connect, succeed and thrive. As a caring 7–12 comprehensive high school we strive to provide students with an inclusive and engaging curriculum and a highly supportive learning environment. Colyton High School encompasses a holistic approach to wellbeing. 

At Colyton High School we believe in the core values of public education including integrity, excellence, respect, responsibility and fairness.  We actively build authentic school/family partnerships that empower our students to build on their strengths and fulfil their potential. Each student is valued for their unique capacity to contribute to the life of the school. A sense of self-worth is encouraged, by creating an atmosphere in which every student may reach their individual potential, choosing from the many areas of learning and endeavour which our wide range of curricular and co-curricular activities provide. We offer a broad curriculum with a strong academic focus and outstanding trade facilities to provide extensive opportunities for our students to succeed.

Our aim is to develop compassionate, connected, articulate young people who have the confidence and determination to succeed, no matter where their journey takes them. Everyday leadership and participation skills are developed through active involvement in all aspects of school life, providing students with the foundations for lifelong learning. We are striving to enhance our strong reputation as a welcoming school. We welcome you to Colyton High School.
