Welcome to Adventure School


Adventure School is a co-educational full primary school. We are located in Whitby, occupying a sunny, scenic site that is surrounded by bush-clad hills.  

Opened in 1989, Adventure was named after one of the ships that Captain Cook used in his voyages of discovery. We see learning as an adventure, so what better name could there be for a great school like ours.

Our learning vision is that Adventure students will strive to be effective thinkers, problem-solvers and communicators - celebrating uniqueness and learning in all aspects of life.  The values we uphold are based around our RIPPER programme.  A RIPPER student is one who displays the values of Respect, integrity, Personal Excellence, Participation, Empathy and Resilience.

We also have a flourishing Arts and Cultural programme, encourage active participation in a wide range of sports and are embracing the latest in eLearning tools and initiatives.

Our school has an exceptional team of professional teaching staff who offer warmth, support and encouragement that allows children to develop into responsible life-long learners. We work collaboratively to provide the best possible learning environment. We value all children as individuals and cater for their particular learning styles.

We are proud of the Adventure learning community and hope you will join us as you child embarks on his or her own voyage of discovery.
