About Us

Montrose Bay High School is a co-educational, comprehensive high school catering for students in Grades 7–12.

Montrose Bay High School is located 15 kilometres north of central Hobart, in southern Tasmania. The school occupies a fantastic site overlooking the Derwent River. With the magnificent Kunanyi / Mount Wellington as a backdrop, the school has beautifully landscaped grounds.

Recent renovations have seen a major upgrade of the school facilities with state-of-the-art workshops, a Catering Kitchen and Studio facilities.

The school draws students from the northern suburbs of Hobart. The enrolment policy sets out admission details. There are currently around 600 students and approx. 100 staff (teachers, itinerant and support staff) at the school. The school is organised around a grade structure which provides pastoral care and support.

We are very fortunate at Montrose Bay High School in that we have an energetic and enthusiastic staff who want to be at our school and are very committed to the students. We have a good mix of young and more experienced teachers.

Your child is an important person to us. We are very keen to ensure that all of our students are supported in their schooling and we are particularly energetic in ensuring that instances of bullying and harassment are dealt with promptly and effectively.

We are proud of our school and our students. This is a school that cares about people and believes that schools should be enjoyable and challenging places where everyone can succeed.


Our main campus of Montrose Bay High School stands on one of the most picturesque sites in Australia.

A decision was made early in 2009 by the School Association and staff of Rosetta and Claremont High Schools to begin an amalgamation process into 2010 to ensure students could have access to improved learning spaces, including a new Performing Arts Centre, Science laboratories and Art studios.
