Welcome to Athelstone School

Athelstone School is located in the foothills of the Mount Lofty Ranges between the River Torrens in the north and the Black Hill / Morialta Conservation Parks in the south. Our school has very strong links to the community.

It is the mission of our school to create a safe and challenging environment, where all learners have the opportunity to develop high order skills and develop the knowledge, deep understandings and personal qualities necessary to flourish and succeed in life and work in the 21st century.

Athelstone School is committed to providing quality teaching and positive learning outcomes for all students. The students will engage in the curriculum and programs, which will enhance their growth as individuals and allow them to achieve their highest potential.

We are committed to providing a supportive teaching environment.

Tours are conducted by the principal. 2024 tour dates are yet to be finalised. Please contact the school and register your interest in attending a tour next year.


“Our vision is to become an exemplary, interdependent and compassionate learning community, where expectations are high and achievements extraordinary.”
