A new $100 million state-of-the-art secondary school will be built in Whyalla to accommodate 1500 students in years 7 to 12, including 48 inclusive places for students with disability.

The school will replace Whyalla's three existing high school campuses - Edward John Eyre High, Whyalla High and Stuart High.

Key features of the design include:

  • A three-storey build with a STEM focused design.
  • Contemporary learning spaces, multi-level outdoor learning and social spaces.
  • Plaza at ground level with landscaping.
  • A double court gymnasium, expansive sporting fields and courts that can be utilised by the community.
  • Performing arts theatre.

The school is scheduled to open January 2022.

It is estimated more than 1200 people will be employed locally over the course of the schools construction, including 240 new full-time jobs.
