Principal’s welcome

Ayr State High School is the largest secondary school in the Burdekin area catering for students in Years 7 to 12.

We have a proud tradition of academic excellence and service to our community.
We have a strong belief that every student can learn, which is articulated in our purpose statement SUCCESS:  Every Student, Every Day.
We value learning, global citizenship and quality relationships. Ayr State High School looks to make a difference in all of our students’ lives so they develop into responsible, informed and valued citizens of the world.  We expect all students to be leaders - leaders of self and others.
Being an Ayr High Learner is all about learning and achieving to your personal best. An Ayr High Learner is inquiring, resilient, self-motivated and aspirational. They are a values driven leader who is inclusive, community-minded and acts with integrity.
Our staff strive to continuously develop their teaching practice using research based methods in order to meet the needs of the contemporary learner. We are committed to developing a three-way partnership between staff, students and parents/carers to optimise the learning potential of all students.
We celebrate our diversity and teach our students that difference brings a richness to our experiences, providing each of us the opportunity to learn and grow. We encourage our students to embrace each other as part of a bigger Ayr High family, standing strong and proud together, valuing our differences and being united in our commitment to learn, grow and excel as individuals.
Feel free to learn more about our great school and how being an Ayr High Learner helps you look to embrace the future as a confident and caring citizen who values personal excellence.
Yours in education
