Principal’s Welcome

“I am very proud to be Principal of Forest Hill College. We are a school that recognises the importance of knowing our students, we establish high expectations, provide ongoing support and expect great outcomes from each and every member of the community.” Principal – David Rogers

The College has a reputation for inspiring students to achieve their personal best and generating great pride in their school. The foundations of our College lie within the three College values we live by every day:

  • Connect
  • Explore
  • Aspire

Forest Hill College is a diverse and inclusive learning environment that encompasses students from a diverse range of cultural backgrounds including a thriving International Students Program.

Classrooms are calm and orderly with staff and students working together to ensure our Learning Culture is maintained to the highest level.  Students are aware of the College wide focus on our core business of academic success for all students and demonstrate this through their love of learning.

The College has an established set of Effective Learning Behaviours and an ongoing cycle of feedback to students and parents that fosters growth and cultivates aspirations. Whilst the College has embarked on some innovative initiatives such as full implementation of 1:1 devices (including a Bring Your Own Device Program), contemporary learning spaces and Forest Hill College Sports & Performing Arts Academy, we are proud of our traditional focus on teaching and learning and academic rigour.

Students enjoy participating in a wide range of extra-curricular activities that complement the academic program. We are renowned for our achievements in Debating, Sport and the Performing and Visual Arts.

The teaching staff at Forest Hill College are constantly building on their individual and collective strengths, through a rigorous and supportive performance appraisal system, aimed at promoting growth and improvement. I, along with my Assistant Principals, take great interest in the learning environment, making regular visits to all classes to ensure that we speak with confidence about the quality of teaching and learning that is occurring.

I personally invite and encourage you to explore our College in more depth by participating in a College tour with me, taking an in-depth look at our website and talking with any of our students, parents and staff.
