Hamilton Senior High School is acknowledged as a truly comprehensive school within the Fremantle Peel District. We pride ourselves on meeting the needs of all our students and the wider community through a diverse and innovative curriculum structure, outstanding care of students and a partnership with local industry and business that has won awards at a state and national and global level.
The Academic program of the school is extensive, catering for a variety of student needs, aspirations and abilities. The curriculum at Year 8 and 9 level focuses on developing and assisting students to become more powerful and independent learners, with our establishment of a thinking curriculum based on inquiry learning.
As aspects of school organisation, program structure, classroom practice and student learning have evolved to reflect mandated Government Policy.
The Sub School system at Hamilton is renowned as a system that allows us to provide individual care and support for students. It enables our lower school students to belong to 'little' schools, where they can be given help, become known and know others, and where their teachers and Sub School Head can get to know them and their parents. This encourages our young people to develop to their potential both socially and academically.
Each Sub School has its own rooms and teachers so that students have a 'home base' and more easily make the transition from primary to secondary school.
Each of our four lower school Sub Schools - Delta, Leda Omega (Yrs 8 & 9) and Omedele (Yr 10) provide the perfect vehicle for the implementation of Curriculum Frameworks. This allows a full integration of both the academic and pastoral care structures within the school.
Linking this system with a middle schooling, integrated studies, pedagogy reinforces both pastoral care and the provision of 21st century educational opportunities.
