Duncraig Senior High School is a northern coastal government school located 20 kilometres from the GPO and 2 kilometres from one of Perth’s best beaches and tourist attractions, Hillarys Marina.
Duncraig Senior High School is an Independent Public School. Although still a state school, it has greater autonomy and flexibility in managing its educational programme.
Duncraig Senior High School provides a safe and caring environment which maximizes learning. The educational program is designed to support the development of the whole person: a person who seeks excellence, has a positive attitude, and respects the rights of others.
The school motto, ‘CARING to ACHIEVE’, emphasises the strong school commitment to caring for each member of the school community, as well as a desire to achieve excellence in all pursuits.
Duncraig Senior High School opened in 1979 with 185 students coming from mainly Duncraig, Sorrento, Padbury, Lymburner, and Davallia Primary Schools.
In 1984, our first group entered from Glengarry Primary, and in 1986, the school population was over 1400. In 1987 with the opening of Padbury High School, our contributing Primary Schools were reduced to Duncraig, Glengarry, and Sorrento.
However, in 2011 the decision to close Padbury Senior High School has once again expanded the number of contributory primary schools. There are now 7 (Duncraig, Glengarry, Sorrento, Padbury, South Padbury, Hillarys and Bambara) and this has seen the school population rise to its current level of 1083 students.
The Intake Area for Duncraig Senior High School runs from the Indian Ocean to the Mitchell Freeway (west to east) and from the northern side of Warwick Road, Freeman Way and High Street Sorrento, to the southern side of Whitfords Avenue (south to north). Students living in this area are guaranteed a place at the School.

Prospective parents and students are invited to participate in guided tours of the working school throughout 2012.
Enjoy a brief discussion with the Principal and Associate Principals in the Administration block and then see the school in action as you are taken on a guided tour.
Parents of children in Primary School have found these tours very beneficial in previous years. Year 7 students attend the school in December for an Orientation Day.
Tours are usually conducted between 9:30 am and 10:30 am.
