Headmaster's Welcome

Dr Petterson 350 welcome

Shore was established in 1889 as a leading comprehensive school for the education of boys. In 2003 we also welcomed girls to our Early Learning Centre and Kindergarten, Year 1 and Year 2 facility at the Northbridge Campus. Our rich history and traditions have powerfully shaped our School, fostering a sense of community and belonging.

Reflecting Shore’s Christian foundations, we focus on developing the whole person, intellectually, physically, spiritually, and socially. We place a strong emphasis on character formation, challenging our students to be responsible citizens of integrity who seek to serve the wider community.

Our commitment to a truly comprehensive education means we pursue engaged rigour in academic work, and also offer a wide range of learning experiences, both in and out of the classroom. We create a genuine partnership between the School and home, enabling each student to discover their individual talents and preparing them for the realities and challenges of our contemporary world.

We believe the best evidence of success will be exhibited in the adult lives of those who have passed through the School. We are proud of our many Old Boys who have served in all walks of life with great dedication.

I am delighted to extend an invitation to you to visit Shore and explore all that a Shore education has to offer.
