Our History

Henley Beach Primary School has a long and proud history, originally opening in 1924. The Performing Arts / Science block, which was originally the schools canteen and woodwork shop was built in 1957. The open space unit that originally housed only six classrooms was built in 1971. However, with recent additions, the open space unit now provides learning areas for six classrooms and a recently upgraded area for our R-2 Small Class that offers a secure outdoor area, as well as a kitchen and disabled bathroom. We Amalgamated with Fulham Primary in 1988 when Fulham Primary was closed. Since then, Henley Beach Primary has continually offered a welcoming and supportive schooling environment. Over the past decade, we have been apart of extravagant growth and exciting development. A number of renovations have provided us with upgraded / new facilities, including:

  • New Administration Area 

  • Upgraded Performing Arts Suite

  • New School Gym

  • New Classrooms

  • New Toilet Facilities

  • New Playground Extensions

  • Wireless School Internet (WiFi)


Beyond these, Henley Beach Primary proudly boasts some of the best sporting and playground facilities in the western suburbs, with our extensive oval and playground areas.
