Message from the Principal

 Mr Warren Schmidt

Victoria Girls’ High School remains at the forefront of innovative teaching. For over 125 years we have not only continuously adapted to the changing environment, we have done so as leaders: pro-actively embracing challenges. We thrive on challenges, the greatest of which is the holistic development of our learners. Our focus will never be on academic development solely, or on sport or cultural activities. It cannot be if we want to help each learner on the road to self-discovery and self-actualisation.

2025 Admission applications open:
14 March 2024.
