Our History

Seaview High School was formed in 1989 when Seacombe High School (1960 – 1989) and Dover High School (1956 – 1965) / Dover Gardens Girls Technical High School (1965 – 1989) amalgamated on the site of Seacombe High School.

In 2003 Seaview High School became the first southern suburbs school to be granted international accreditation. The status was awarded by a team of 12 international and Australian educationists who concluded the school had reached “world’s best practice” levels after considering student feedback. The accreditation, achieved after passing 138 different criteria, caps off the school’s recovery from the tough times when dwindling numbers led to its merger with Dover Gardens High School in 1989.

The school originally had a large unit for students who were visually impaired and this continued with a secondary school program, initially through Townsend House then through the South Australian School for the Vision Impaired, until 2019.

In its initial years, Seaview High School had an enrolment of around 950 students and has gone through a few stages in its growth. In 2022, Year 7 students joined the Year 8 – 12 cohorts in alignment with the rest of the state, seeing the school grow to over 1300 enrolments.
