Principal and Staff

The Settlers High School is young and vibrant; pioneering English education in the Northern Suburbs

The school was started on 19 January 1965 with Mr E T Hobbs as its first Headmaster; the buildings were officially opened on 24 April 1969 the year of the first matric class. The school has grown to become a major school confident in its achievements in education and its service to the community. We are blessed to have an exceptional staff without which our school would not be where it is today.
