Construction underway at Unley High School

Thousands of homes in the newly expanded Unley High School zone are set to have access to new and modern teaching facilities at Unley High School, with increased capacity, as we deliver a $32.5 million upgrade of the school.


Construction has now begun and forms part of the Marshall Liberal Government's record $1.3 billion education build, which is resulting in more than 100 major school building projects across the state.  

Unley High School’s zone has recently been expanded from the 2021 school year onwards, with Springbank Secondary College set to become an unzoned school and the entirety of its zone merged into the Unley zone.

This means the suburbs of Westbourne Park, Cumberland Park, Clarence Gardens, Clarence Park, Kings Park, Black Forest, Melrose Park, Daw Park, Colonel Light Gardens, Lower Mitcham, Clapham, Pasadena, Panorama and St Marys, as well as additional parts of Hawthorn and Millswood, are all now included in the Unley High zone.

Upgrades to Unley High School include the construction of additional learning areas and a new three storey building for flexible learning including home economics, technology, art and science. Upgrades will also include classroom spaces and a new outdoor landscaped courtyard with a covered outdoor learning area. 

More information on the progress of the Marshall Government’s $1.3 billion education build can be found on the Department for Education website.
