About Our School
Welcome from the Head of School
A very warm welcome to our website, which will give you an insight into the key attributes that make Hobart High School special. We are proud of the manner in which we blend academic ethos, wide ranging extra-curricular opportunities and strong pastoral care.

Provision of quality teaching and learning is at the heart of our school. Our staff focus on developing teaching strategies that positively support progress, and the excellent school facilities support this. They include several fully equipped ICT suites, an up-to-date technology workshop with laser-cutter and 3D printer, a vibrant and well-stocked library, sports centre, heated swimming pool and full-size artificial football pitch.
Our school ethos – excellence in a caring community – captures the ambitious vision we have for our students. We expect all pupils to strive for excellence in all that they do, both within their studies, and in how they conduct themselves in lessons around the site, and beyond the school gates. We aim to develop young people that care for each other and their environment. Our dedicated pastoral team ensure that those individuals requiring support at difficult times can access it in a timely fashion.
We greatly value our provision of extra-curricular opportunities, and believe it is vital that our offer is wide-ranging enough to cater for a variety of interests. Each year features a range of trips, some of which venture abroad. Students can enter for the Duke of Edinburgh Award, participate in extra sport, take up instrumental lessons, campaign for diversity and environmental issues, perform at our concerts or in our drama productions, and seek to have their say through the student voice and leadership opportunities within our school.
I believe that the Hobart High School offers something unique, and feel privileged to be a part of what we provide. If you would like experience our school, please contact us to arrange a visit.
