Welcome to Thornlie Senior High School

We are a proud Independent Public Secondary School with over four decades of experience in successfully educating our 1200 Year 7-12 students to identify their aspirations and achieve their personal goals.

We value well-established educational traditions set by past teachers, parents and students and we are passionate in our desire to use the latest research and learning strategies in Visible Learning to prepare our current students for the 21st Century. We know where we are going and how to get there.

Thornlie Senior High School recognises that the world around us is changing and we are changing with it. Our students come to us from many different backgrounds, but they leave with one thing in common – a great education and a significant head start in life. Thornlie SHS students develop the skills they need to thrive in the challenging, interesting and dynamic 21st Century.
