STUDENT LIFE AT EYNESBURY
At Eynesbury there is no ‘it’ crowd, no bells, uniforms or prefects so students can concentrate on getting the most from their studies. Individuality is celebrated and once a student steps through the doors, they know they are an important part of the Eynesbury community and are quickly absorbed into the culture.
Students come to Eynesbury from locations all over Adelaide, Australia and beyond, for many different reasons. Some choose Eynesbury because of the wide subject offering and flexible university like timetables, or because they don’t feel as if they ‘fit the mold’ at their current school.
You don’t need to be a straight A student to apply to enrol in Eynesbury; we are more interested in being attitudinally selective than academically selective. We welcome motivated students who really want to be here and work with like-minded learners.
Eynesbury is part of the Safe School's Coalition dedicated to providing a safe and inclusive environment for same sex attracted and gender diverse, students, school staff and families. All students need to feel included at school, only then can they be engaged with school and do well.
We understand that moving schools is a life changing decision. See below for some answers to common questions which may help you further with your decision process.
Will I make friends?
Of course! Eynesbury is friendly and accepting place. With all three year levels sharing the same vibrant city campus a supportive and inclusive environment is fostered.
We know that starting a new school can be daunting however, every year at Eynesbury, all Year 10 students and about 50% of year 11 and 12 students are new to the school.
We welcome you to experience a day in the life of an Eynesbury student at a trial day. Our friendly student ambassadors will take the time to show you around campus, to classes and you will probably walk away with a number of new friends to add on social media!
What is the dress code?
There is no uniform at Eynesbury however your clothing should not be offensive or distract from other learners. You are able to wear makeup, dye your hair and wear jewellery.
