Lead Principal's Welcome

It is a pleasure to welcome students and families to Hobart City High School. A leading Tasmanian public school located in our capital city. 

Across our two campuses, we embrace innovation and new opportunities to offer the best educational experience to all students.

Our vision is to serve our community as the school of choice for Hobart families. We achieve this through unlocking the potential of our students through providing high quality learning experiences that engage all learners to grow, to learn and to thrive.      

Our highest priorities are student learning, engagement and wellbeing. This lens ensures our students are at the centre of a high performing school experience that is diverse, inclusive, and provides the right array of holistic support to set them up to reach their full potential in life. 

Our aim as a school is to: 

  • support inquisitive and aspirational learners by providing academic and personal development, with a focus on inquiry-based learning methods, delivered by expert teaching teams
  • embed guided instruction in communicating and critical thinking in all learning experiences to provide students with the knowledge, understanding and capabilities they need to succeed in their future careers
  • support student mental health and wellbeing with significant professional support services and resources.

Hobart City High School enjoys a strategic partnership with Elizabeth College, known as the Hobart City Partner Schools.  This is a formal partnership, unique in Tasmania, to provide a singular experience of support for every student through programs that inspire academic development, responsibility and independence while providing clear, well-lit pathways from Years 7 to 12 that are supported by the entire teaching staff of both schools. 

I know that visiting Hobart City High School is such an important part of many families’ decision-making process and I look forward to meeting you at one of our open days throughout the year.
