Sorell is the oldest continuously operating school in Tasmania and perhaps Australia.  Over its 175 year history it has so far had 29 headmasters and principals, all of whose names are recorded in the foyer of the secondary administration block.

Sorell School provides the full range of educational services from kindergarten to grade 10 that are typically provided in primary and high schools. At the end of grade 10 the bulk of our students move on to Rosny College but some remain at Sorell to undertake registered training in VET programs through our Skills Centre.
