About Us

Welcome to the website of Le Fevre High School. Our school is one of the longest established secondary schools in South Australia with a proud tradition of providing quality education extending from 1910. We celebrated the Centenary of foundation of the school over the period 14th to 19th September 2010 with four special events; The Centenary Assembly for students and old scholars, the Centenary Arts Showcase, The Centenary Dinner Dance and the Official Centenary Commemoration and Reunion function.

Currently Le Fevre High school is a dynamic and exciting educational establishment providing a diverse range of educational pathways within recently upgraded and extended world class facilities.

Our programs include being a lead school in the SA Trade Schools of the Future program, a member of the Western Adelaide Secondary Schools Advanced Skills Industry Program, a recently announced Maritime High School  Program focusing on high level Maritime skill sets, Mathematics, Sciences and IT skills applicable to the Navy and associated maritime industries, renowned multimedia arts and skills centre, a full university preparation academic pathway, strong vocational opportunities, an excellent performing and visual arts program, and a comprehensive pastoral care and case management approach to supporting studentsí well being in all its dimensions as they make the journey from early adolescence to young adulthood in our care.

Underpinning everything we do at Le Fevre High School is our commitment to our shared values of care, commitment, co-operation and respect.

Thus the strength of our school lies in ensuring our staff, students and community work towards the common goals of achieving personal bests and a commitment to ongoing improvement. As we are a candidate school for the IBMYP the learner profile and graduate qualities of the program are central to our approach. It is an exciting place to be, both for students and staff as the partnerships between the school and families are strong and productive.

At Le Fevre High School each student has the opportunity to excel in their study program as well as to participate in a diverse range of co-curricular activities in sport, performing arts, community programs, and personal development activities.

We have a ‘focus on learning’ approach which means students are expected to perform at their potential and the staff support students through a homework program after school and through the pastoral system Students not meeting expectations are not automatically promoted.

We are very proud of the past achievements of the school community and the fine traditions of our school and we are very positive about the innovative and diverse range of opportunities that unfold for our current student cohort. I acknowledge the tremendous collective commitment of the whole school community; Governing Council and its sub-committees such as the very energetic fund raising group, students, parents/caregivers and the wider community in supporting the success of our school.
I am proud to invite you to visit our website and trust it will give you an opportunity to learn more about the life of the Le Fevre High School community.
