Northam Senior High School is the oldest Senior High School outside the Metropolitan area, having been established in 1921. As such its beautiful old buildings exemplify the tradition and history of the school, whilst its ongoing upgrades give it excellent facilities, especially in Information Technology. Our motto is 'Achievement' and our mission statement is to foster pride and a sense of community among students, staff and parents/caregivers.

Students attend Northam Senior High School from across the Avon Valley, and a wide range of upper school courses are available. The school has a proud record of achievement in TEE, WSA and VET Courses. To complement the agricultural aspects of the district, the school also provides an agricultural and trades curriculum. A farm is leased to support the agricultural courses and the trades course is strongly supported by our close working relationship with C Y O'Connor College of TAFE.
