School Context



The Heights School is for students from Pre-school to Year 13.

We operate as three subschools:

  • Junior School – Pre-school to Year 6
  • Middle School – Year 6/7 to Year 9
  • Senior School – Year 10 to Year 13

The Junior and Middle Schools offer a broad, balanced program for all students, incorporating the 8 areas of learning required by the Department of Education and Children’s Services.

The Senior School offers a wide choice of subjects which enable students to study for their South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE). Specialist career pathways through the Vocational Education and Training (VET) program are also available.

We are recognised nationally and internationally as a school of excellence catering for gifted students from Pre-school to Year 13. The IGNITE program offers opportunities for highly gifted students to develop their skills and talents.

  • To make an enrolment enquiry, contact the school by phone. The receptionist will complete an enquiry form which will be forwarded to the appropriate Sub-school Leader. The Sub-school Leader will contact you to follow up the enquiry.
