About Us

Esperance Senior High School is a year 7 to 12 regional school on the south-east coast of Western Australia.

The school has a population of around 985 students and a strong culture of academic, vocational, cultural and sporting excellence. Student achievements consistently reflect the school’s vision: Esperance Senior High School, a strong community, creating opportunities for personal excellence.

The school comprises a multi-campus partnership between the Esperance Senior High School Education Support Centre, the Esperance Residential College, and the South Regional TAFE.

The Junior Campus for the year 7 and 8 students, the Senior Campus for the year 9 to 12 students, including an industry-standard Trades Training Centre, and the off-site 800 hectare school farm also form part of the school’s multi-campus educational facilities that offer students a wide variety of school based and community supported programs.
