  Williamstown High School offers a diverse curriculum and a variety of educational resources with a particular focus on developing each student's potential. Two nearby campuses combine Williamstown High School's tradition and reputation with unique programs and spacious settings and offers quality resources and facilities that only established growing schools can

  Williamstown High School is one of Melbourne’s oldest government high schools at almost 100 years old, but its birth date is not easy to pinpoint. The school celebrated its golden jubilee in 1965 and its 75th anniversary in 1980, but records show those celebrations may have been late!

  According to research by former student Andrew Burbidge, official documents show the government took possession of the Williamstown Grammar School in July 1914, and began paying the staff in October that year. The grammar school had opened in 1867 to cater for the needs of the burgeoning community for at that time the government made no provision for schooling beyond year 8.

  The state accepted responsibility for secondary education in 1904 and the Melbourne Continuation School was opened in 1905 (later to become Melbourne High). Similar schools followed in Bendigo, Geelong and Castlemaine and by 1910 there were 10 such schools in the state, including University High. Another eight continuation schools opened in 1912. Eventually the community of Williamstown was recognised.

  Mr Burbidge found a report in the Williamstown Advertiser of October 3 1914 that said “The Grammar School opened on Thursday as an elementary high school.” The borough council and the school council of the time gave the department 3000 pounds, its building and four acres of land in Pasco St, a point noted in A History of State Education in Victoria, published in 1922.

  Plans to celebrate the school’s centenary have begun.

  Celebrating a great century

  From late 2014 and throughout 2015, Williamstown High School will celebrate its first 100 years as a government high school -- and there is much to celebrate. Ours is a vibrant, progressive community and the school has contributed much to the wealth and health of Williamstown and neighbouring suburbs.

  To make the most of this opportunity, the school wants to hear from all past students and staff. We will be inviting you back to the school to relive what we trust are happy memories, and hoping you can bring something to help us build for the school's next century.

  We want the centrepiece of our centenary to be the development of a "Creative and Performing Arts Centre of Excellence", a facility to compliment the school's high achievements in music, media, studio arts and drama. We believe this bold project can be achieved with the help and support of our school alumni.

  Register your interest in the school centenary by completing the details here, and bookmark this page to read regular updates of centenary planning. This is a great opportunity for Williamstown High and all who have attended the school.

  Our motto – Hold Fast

  Williamstown High School has carried the motto “Hold Fast” since its inception. The school’s first headmaster, Mr F. W. Johnson, revealed its origins when the school celebrated its jubilee in 1965.

  When the school was being established, Mr Johnson suggested the motto “Don’t Drift” because he was concerned about the numbers of students drifting away from education. However, the then Victorian Director of Education, Mr Frank Tate, recommended the more positive “Hold Fast”.

  This was the time of World War I and all Australians were anxious about events in Europe. As tribute to Belgium, which had been invaded by Germany, the school adopted the colours of its flag, red, yellow and black. In 2000, a blue band was added to the crest when WHS merged with Point Gellibrand Girls Secondary College.
