History of the School

Strong Tradition and Commitment

Since 1952 Collie Senior High School has delivered academic, university and vocational pathways for the children of the Collie community. We still have high expectations for our students because successful students equal a successful community.

In 1899, the first school in Collie was opened in a rented building by Mr J.T. Blaire with an enrollment of 55. The name of the town was then Coalville and the school was named Coalville School. In 1900, a new, two-roomed school was erected, the enrollment being 110. In 1903 the name of the school was changed to Collie.

For many years from 1924, the original school with its subsequent buildings, catered for both primary and post-primary children and was known as Collie District High School. In 1948, Collie reached the status of a three year High School with an enrolment of 200 post-primary students.

In 1951, the first class of fourth year students was established and in the following year nine students sat for the Leaving Examination (32 students sat for the Junior Examination in 1952).

In 1958 an overall plan was prepared for all buildings on the original site to be converted to High School purposes. These necessitated additional classrooms being erected at Wilson Park and the establishment of a new school at North Collie which was named Fairview.

In 1959, the first stage of conversion and modernisation of the School commenced with the first additions being officially opened on December 1, 1960. Further additions have been made over the years, the most recent of which was the construction of a new Administration block and Staff Room with the upgrade of a number of practical areas and the extension of the library in 2004.

Principal’s Message

I’m so proud of our school. We have a fantastic reputation in our community and personally, I believe this is because we have fantastic people at our school made up both our staff and our students.
Our staff, both teaching and non-teaching are a credit to us.  They are a group of dedicated, passionate and talented leaders. They set the tone for the school.  The experience and enthusiasm they impart on our students results in a caring, positive culture where your child is able to navigate the sometimes challenging years of secondary school.


We work hard to ensure our values of learning, equity, excellence and care are not just bland statements, but are behind all that we do on a practical level. We are committed to the fundamentals of pastoral care and that above all else your child is cared for.
Our students have access to some amazing educational opportunities. Skilled experts lead our academic courses. These are the core subjects that help lay the foundations for learning for life.


We also have significant vocational education and training programs with industry links and well equipped facilities. So if your child is interested in starting a career at school, we can provide this option too.


A well rounded experience at school is important to your child’s well being. There are loads of extracurricular activities on offer as well. Music, art, drama, dance, sport, and civic interests are all part of the big picture here at Collie Senior High School.


At the end of their time at our school, we want your child to be a successful student and a happy and productive member of our community. To make this happen

We Strive – because anything is possible. We want students to Aspire to be their best, Respect themselves, Commit to education and be Honest with themselves and the community.
