As the very proud Principal of this academically high school with a well-respected history of providing exceptional educational outcomes and opportunities for children. I warmly welcome you to the website of Rockwoods High School.

Rockwoods High School aims to create a supportive and inclusive environment where gifted and talented students are encouraged to explore their potential and achieve their best in all aspects of school life.

As the new Principal of Rockwoods High School, I am delighted that the school’s values align with my own personal values, including the importance of trust, respect, innovation and a sense of community. I know that the development of the school over the past few years has been significant and the future will be build on these firm foundations focusing on the quality of school life, especially for the benefit of our learners.

We offer a broad curriculum and a range of opportunities for all our student to achieve excellence in academic, creative, social, cultural, sporting and community endeavours. We value collaborative learning, positive relationships and building capacity amongst our students to effectively allow them to engage in the world of the future, where problem solving, evaluating, working in teams, communicating, creating and innovating are not only valued concepts, but expected skills, attributes and capabilities.

Education at RWHS goes beyond the letters in the page of a textbook, and students emerge as confident young individuals, ready to face the challenges of the 21st century. We inspire our students to question and learn by doing, we give them the skills, courage, optimism and integrity to pursue their own dreams. In doing so, our students develop into confident, creative and caring adults who pursue interesting and challenging careers.

At RWHS, the educational community strives for excellence by preparing students for learning beyond their school years and assisting them to become lifelong learners, as well as helping them to be self-directed, realistic, and responsible decision makers.

Learning takes many forms at RWHS. Each student achieves his or her own potential in the classroom, gymnasium, art room, music room, theatre room, dance room, sports field or on the stage. Being a innovative small school, there are several opportunities for each individual to explore and hone their unique talents. We encourage all our students to persevere, participate and take responsibility for their own development.

Our excellent results at the CBSE Board examinations bear testimony to the excellence of the teaching staff who create a challenging and stimulating learning environment. This helps our students get a good grounding for their further education. Consequently, their undergraduate college placements are impressive.

We look forward to serving you and your children over the coming years. Interested parents are encouraged to contact our school and to ask any questions, regarding our school and the programmes we offer.
