About our school

James Fallon High School is a comprehensive 7–12 high school of approximately 760 students in Albury. It caters to a diverse enrolment, including approximately 18% Aboriginal students.   The school receives equity funding to support students from low socio-economic backgrounds, Aboriginal and English Learning students, and for students requiring low-level disability adjustments. The school's Family and Occupation Index has increased from 128 to 141 in the last two years, indicating an increase in need for resourcing support for its students.

Funding is used in engaging teachers and leaders in engaging learners in distinct and varied ways. These include enriching opportunities for diverse learners, engaging culturally appropriate support, expanding well-being provision, and providing specific links to partnerships in the community for students and their families. The school has been fortunate to receive a Fair Education grant to develop a wellbeing hub over the next three years.

The school offers a broad curriculum and a range of student wellbeing, leadership, academic and co-curricular initiatives, including a Special Education Faculty. The school is committed to Positive Behaviour for Learning.

The school is a Big Picture school with an Academy of 53 students. It has a highly skilled and innovative Creative and Performing Arts faculty, which has provided outstanding opportunities for students.

The school possesses strengths in the areas of collaborative professional learning, strategic partnerships within the Albury educational community, and support for student learning. The staff possess a broad range of experiences and skills, and are enthusiastic about authentic school innovation to improve learning outcomes for students.

Our school is committed to student growth and attainment in their learning. Student wellbeing and engagement including attendance, supportive high expectations classrooms, and cultural inclusion are foundational to student learning in our context. Underpinning student achievement is our professionals: the improvement they make to their practice, and their collaboration in the workplace.
