Pinjarra SHS: Established 1921
Located near the Pinjarra town centre and catering for students in Years 7 through 12, Pinjarra Senior High School provides a mix of traditional and innovative programs aimed at preparing students for tertiary education, TAFE, traineeships and apprenticeships, or the workplace. Our specialty programs include a school-based Football Academy, a Year 11 and 12 practical farm based program, an Academic Extension Program as well as a Music Program that includes a swing band.

Housed in a heritage cottage on the school grounds, our Student Services Team runs specific programs and ensures that students’ pastoral and learning needs are attended to as well as possible. The team works diligently to ensure our students are equipped and able to handle challenges they may face in and out of school. Through partnerships with the local business community and universities, we strive to provide our students with a wealth of opportunities to become involved with Work Place Learning, University enrichment programs, and scholarships.
A considerable amount of renewal and refurbishment of the school has occurred in recent years. Our state of the art Design and Technology facility and Trade Training Centre are well equipped to give our students the best possible start to attaining a trade qualification or apprenticeship. Recently, the school opened its new netball, tennis and basketball courts, boosting physical education and recreational opportunities for our students. In addition, Pinjarra Senior High School also utilises the facilities of the adjacent Murray Leisure Centre. This provides our students with an excellent space for swimming, indoor sports and the arts.
