The Offer:

Devonport Primary understands the value that athletes can provide as role models of personal excellence for our young students.

Devonport Primary is keen to provide opportunities for athletes to develop their career aspirations and support their sporting dreams.
For athletes studying education we can provide time in a classroom environment.

The school also often has flexible work opportunities around sports coordination and sports coaching clinics that can work with athlete training and competition commitments.


Devonport Primary School is committed to providing a high-quality education for its students. We emphasise the importance of achieving personal standards of excellence in academic, sporting, cultural and recreational activities.

Devonport Primary is one of the oldest schools in the country, opening  in 1870. Since then we have developed a rich history and a proud reputation in the community for  providing opportunities for students to experience success both in and beyond the classroom.

The school combines excellent facilities with a progressive curriculum and values such as house spirit, pride in the school and high expectations of students in performance and behaviour. 

These values are reflected in the school' catch cry:

"Moving Young Minds to Higher Ground."
