Urrbrae Agricultural High School is the only special interest agricultural secondary school in South Australia and is recognised as a centre of excellence for studies in agriculture, science, technology and the environment. Located within metropolitan Adelaide, we are no ordinary secondary school, having for our use an outstanding forty-hectare farm in addition to a dedicated wetland for integration with our educational programs.
Our commitment to a sustainable world is complete and all pervasive. We focus on developing our understanding of both the vital role of agriculture and the use of material and information technologies for a globally sustainable world. Our passion for rigorous learning is characterised by the transformation of information to knowledge through scientific methodology and inquiry learning, and our motto, Science with Practice, embodies this ethos.
Urrbrae enjoys outstanding support from the Agricultural Industry, our parents, teachers and students to make it a “city school with a country feel”. We provide a wide range of co-curricular activities to cater for students’ interests in sports, outdoor education, music and drama, as well as student passions for agriculture, animal husbandry, crop production, and more!
Our vision is to provide unique opportunities for learners and future innovators.
Our mission is to be an innovative educational leader in Agricultural and Horticultural Science, Technology and the Environment; to develop engaged citizens, with creative and critical minds, a strong social conscience, and a love of learning; and to foster resilience, independence, personal responsibility and respect for others.
