Welcome to Ardrossan Area School

On behalf of our school community, it is my pleasure to welcome you to Ardrossan Area School.

Ardrossan Area School is a Reception to Year 12 School. Our school is an inclusive learning environment in which all students can achieve excellence, be creative and develop the skills necessary for their future. Our students are creative and critical thinkers who positively impact on their local and global communities.

Our school serves families living along the northern coastal strip of eastern Yorke Peninsula. Local employment is centred on retail, mining, agriculture and health services.

The school’s values are respect, creativity and excellence.

Most students complete all of their education at the school. We have a strong transition program with the Ardrossan & Districts Community Kindergarten. Our school community is very supportive, with an active Governing Council and a School Community Library on-site. We also have strong connections with our wider local community and organisations. The school is well resourced and a high value is placed on literacy, numeracy, entrepreneurship, innovation and environmental sustainability programs. Sport, music and outdoor learning opportunities are an integral part of our school curriculum.

Senior school programs are tailored to individual student needs, enabling them to pursue university pathways, vocational education and training options, school-based apprenticeships and employment. To enhance the learning opportunities provided by the school, we work in collaboration with other local schools, the Open Access College, Northern Territory Distance Education and Registered Training Organisations.

If you would like to know more about our school, please contact us for a meeting and school tour.
