New north school location

6 August 2019

Fourteen hectares of land on Riverbanks Road in Angle Vale has been earmarked as the location for the new birth to year 12 school in Adelaide’s north.

The Angle Vale site was selected following an extensive feasibility process by the State Government.

The school will cater to the growing demand for public education in the area, accommodating up to 1675 students, including 100 inclusive places for students with disability and a 75 place children’s centre.

The curriculum will focus on science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) studies to place the students in the best position to secure the jobs of the future.

The new school’s proximity to industry, defence and agriculture will also enhance the range of opportunities student will have to engage with local businesses.

The new school will be built as part of a Public Private Partnership (PPP) and ready for the start of the 2022 school year.

It is one of three new schools set to be built across the state, with a new Whyalla secondary school and new southern school in Aldinga also opening in 2022.

The concept design for the schools will be available to the public by early 2020 after the successful proponent has been awarded a contract later this year.
