Atherton High School is committed to providing our students with a first-class education. We aim to equip our students to be successful, considerate and caring members of society. We are united by our three key values:


We show respect for our school, our work, our teachers, ourselves and each other. We embrace our similarities and celebrate our differences. We work well together and represent Atherton High School in the best way every day.


We take responsibility for our actions and do what it takes to be successful at Atherton High School. We set high standards and lead by example. We support and encourage each other and play our part in ensuring that we can all achieve our goals.  Whatever challenges and barriers we face, we have a responsibility to meet them head on, to make progress and develop as people.


We have high expectations and challenge ourselves to reach the most ambitious targets. We work hard to maintain the highest standards and strive to exceed every expectation.

“I love that AHS is a small school where I can pretty much name every child and have taught most of them. This is one of the reasons why teacher-student relationships are strong and promote good attitudes to learning. Everyone knows what the expectations are and the support from SLT in maintaining these standards and expectations when students occasionally fall short of them is first-class.”
