Principal's Welcome

Welcome to Tom Price Senior High School. It is my privilege to serve the students, teachers and families of this wonderful school and community.

We live the values of Personal Best, Integrity and Respect and work to nurture a learning environment that prepares our 324 students to achieve their goals, both academic and non-academic.

Our school’s vision is to inspire students to embrace their diversity and be passionate about learning in order to achieve their personal best. This is fostered through the extensive Year 7 to Year 12 secondary education program, supported by Vocational Education and Training (VET), cultural, artistic and sporting opportunities. A key element of our academic STEM program is the Centre of Resources Excellence (CoRE), withe the Pilbara CoRE program offered to interested students in Years 7 and 8. The school is also participating in the Fogarty Foundation EDvance program, a whole school improvement program providing school executive teams with leadership and management skills via a mentorship to improve the educational outcomes of our students.

Tom Price SHS is an Independent Public School located near the picturesque surrounds of the Karijini National Park 1600km from Perth, servicing students who live in the towns of Tom Price, Paraburdoo and the nearby Aboriginal communities Wakuthuni and Bellary. The achievement of our students is made possible by the dedication, support and excellence of the talented teachers we are fortunate to have in our school and through partnerships with local industry and businesses via school based programs and traineeships.

I invite you to take a look through our website for further information on our school and encourage you to visit us for a personal tour to view for yourself the impressive facilities and spectacular surroundings that make our school so unique.

School Review

All Western Australian public schools are reviewed every three years by the Department of Education’s Public School Accountability directorate. A review gives assurance to the local community, the Minister for Education and Training and the Director General that a school is operating effectively and delivering high quality education to its students. The review acknowledges the achievements of the school and gives feedback to support the principal and staff with their improvement planning.
