Camberwell High School


Camberwell High School is proud of its long history of excellence in education since it was established in 1941.
Camberwell High School’s purpose is to prepare all students to develop into active and engaged participants in society. The school promotes learning that is transformative, focused on growth, dynamic, respectful and built on positive relationships. The school community challenges all students to exceed expectations for achievement in all areas of endeavour.
All students are encouraged to take an active part in their learning development. The curriculum at Camberwell High School provides students with a sound academic education while also recognising that students are individuals who require varied approaches to support their learning needs. We understand that all students have different ways of learning, different strengths and interests and the options available in the curriculum and in co-curricular programs provide students with the opportunities to make choices, pursue their passions and build independence as they prepare for their futures as 21st century citizens.
We encourage all students and staff to exemplify the values of the school: Achievement, Creativity, Respect and Responsibility. The school has a strong House system and promotes student leadership and student voice through formal roles and frequent focus group meetings and forums. The Student Representative Council (SRC) is an active group leading many student activities throughout the school year. The SRC presidents are valued members of the School Council.
The original 1941 building is complemented by a range of purpose built facilities. In 2013, the Enterprise Centre, a home base for Year 9 students, promoting the development of independent learners was completed. The Oval complex providing high quality sport facilities was completed in 2017. Several planned and funded redevelopments are currently underway. Camberwell High School is at the forefront of educational provision, seamlessly blending history and traditions with contemporary learning.
