About our school

South Grafton High School is a comprehensive and innovative co-educational high school, situated in Tyson street, South Grafton, northern NSW. 

With 'Excellence and Innovation' central to our ethos, we aim to foster successful learners who are confident, creative individuals and active, informed citizens. This is achieved through sustained, continuous improvement and development of leadership potential, whilst embedding our core Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) values.

South Grafton High School is part of the Grafton Community of Schools, which allows us to access a wide range of external service providers and cater for student needs through a collaborative decision–making process. The school seeks to be firmly grounded in our local community with strong links to universities, TAFE, local business and volunteer organisations. Our school provides learning environments that cater for individual student learning needs, as well as opportunities that allow all students to develop to their full potential.

We have gained local and regional recognition for our Year 7 Platinum program, our self-select programs and the Clarence Science Initiative (CSI), our school wide technology initiatives and involvement in Career Link and VET courses. On the sporting fields, our students compete with enthusiasm, pride and sportsmanship, regularly bring home the trophies.
