Welcome to The Patch School

Dear Parents,

We are proud of our award winning school; we are even more proud of our students, past and present.

The Patch School offers excellence in mastering the building blocks of learning through our innovative literacy and numeracy programs. We pride ourselves on providing a broad range of curriculum experiences designed to connect, build a sense of self and to challenge our students.

We believe that it is our role to develop our students into independent, critical thinkers and passionate learners that will serve them well, long past graduation from The Patch School.

We focus on providing a vibrant, caring learning environment where every individual student is encouraged to be the best they can be; where they develop a strong sense of self belief and an ethical belief system based on respect, responsibility and resilience.

At The Patch School we have a strong focus on the environment, and connection to land and our heritage.  We are located on a stunning 4.8 hectares, which include student designed gardens, an environmental centre and wetlands.

We work hard to build a strong sense of connectedness to community, family and positive peer groups within our students. The relationship between staff, students and family is critical to successful learning. Ours is one based on openness, respect and the mutual desire for our students to achieve and be happy.

We are small enough to provide a personal, supportive environment but big enough to have interesting and challenging curriculum, speciality staff and programs.  

We believe our greatest achievement is our young people and I encourage you to come and have a student led tour and to see for yourself, our wonderful school.
