The school’s tagline, learning to make a difference, is upheld through the values of respect, equality and equity, integrity, empathy, authenticity and kindness. Herschel strives to build a caring student body where belonging is the priority, encouraging inclusion and acceptance above all else.
Our aim is to provide ample opportunities, a safe environment and the dynamic toolkit necessary to support the blossoming of happy and healthy students.
It is our belief that a solid education is one which caters to growth in all aspects of life – intellectual, social, physical and spiritual, and one which offers a robustness to allow for each student to undertake their own journey.
We set out to spark a curiosity for learning, encourage excellence without an obsession with perfection, and value contributions across the field, the stage, the community and beyond. Opportunities for friendship, skill development and all around growth are plentiful.
You Belong Here
Students are able to discover their potential through participation in community engagement, drama, music, sport and a range of clubs and societies. We strive to carve out nurturing spaces in which students feel a strong sense of belonging as they find their way in life, all while growing, changing and developing into independent individuals set to take on the world.
