Situated on the picturesque banks of the Swan River in Woodbridge (formerly West Midland),
Governor Stirling Senior High School was established in its present location in 1958. As well as
a strong sense of tradition the school enjoys an outstanding record of academic and sporting
excellence. Governor Stirling SHS maintains a population of approximately 1000 students. Included
in this number are approximately 80 students from across the state that reside at Swanleigh
Residential College and add a further dimension to the school community. The school is close to
the centre of Midland and draws students from a wide range of feeder primary schools throughout
the Swan District.
The school has a diverse population, catering for all students and their educational needs. Governor Stirling Senior High School offers Academic Talent Programs in both Mathematics/Science and Humanities and students attending the school may be selected for one or both of these, which offer an enriched challenging course. Approximately 80 Aboriginal students participate in mainstream curriculum. The school is working to incorporate an Aboriginal perspective across the Learning Areas and create a learning environment that is culturally and appropriately inclusive for Aboriginal and ethnic students.
