Welcome to Ballarat High School


Ballarat High School is a community of learners who value Pride, Respect and Responsibility. We have a shared learning framework which places the learner at the centre. This framework encompasses our shared beliefs and understandings about effective learning in the 21st Century classroom. We are committed to educating the learner for the 21st Century and have most recently been developing strategies to personalise learning for all members of our school community. This goal ensures that Ballarat High School remains at the forefront of education in Ballarat and Victoria.

As a community of learners we place significant emphasis on student connectedness and engagement and have developed approaches which allow students and teachers to build positive and enduring relationships. This stems from our innovative approach to teaching and learning and by providing structures to support student learning. In building a ‘Learning Community’, we have developed a Year 7/8 team structure, Year 9 ARCH program and our pathway program Years 10 to 12, allow our teachers to model innovative teaching and learning practices.

The small team structures have now been enhanced by the introduction of learning advisers for all students. This ensures that every student in our learning community has an adviser who understands how they learn and helps them to achieve their best. This approach ensures that all students interact in a safe and positive learning environment. Our extensive enrichment programs and exceptional facilities extend their talents beyond the classroom.
