Urrbrae Agricultural High School (UAHS) is a comprehensive secondary (Year 8 – 12) school recognised as a centre of excellence in student learning with a focus on Agriculture, Technology and the Environment. Established as an Agricultural High School in 1932, it has continued to educate SA secondary aged students in an agriculturally focussed curriculum to the present day. It is also designated by the SA Department of Education and Children’s Services (DECS) as the Special Interest School in Agriculture and Horticulture for the State of South Australia and therefore provides more comprehensive courses in these two subject areas than other secondary schools. It is also recognised by the Department as a focus school in Environmental Education / Landcare and Technology. Each of these subjects are combined as aspects of an across school curriculum. Alongside these specialist subjects, Urrbrae students study the normal range of secondary school subjects or can choose from the specialised certificate courses at senior school level.

The school is situated just six kilometres from the Adelaide CBD and sits at the base of the Adelaide Hills within a close urban metropolitan landscape. It is a complex school with extensive land holdings of 46 hectares (114 acres). This includes defined areas for farming, plant and animal husbandry, environmental land, pasture, horticulture and arboriculture paddocks and an extensive flood mitigation and wetlands education and land management project (Urrbrae Wetland Flood Mitigation Project), along with public access areas (gymnasium, swimming pool, tennis courts and generous playing field areas).
