Eleanor Hughes - Principal

Joseph Banks Secondary College

Since 2010, Eleanor has held principal positions. First, as principal at Hampton Senior High School where she worked with the Senior Leadership Team to lead initiatives to raise achievement across the school. From 2014, Eleanor was the Foundation Principal for Joseph Banks Secondary College where she has established a school that is innovative, provides multiple opportunities for students to succeed and where the foundation has been laid for strong achievement into the future.


Building Curious Learners

At Joseph Banks Secondary College we believe that all students should be literate, numerate and curious. Using a body of works based on current and contemporary research we have established a school that has at its core, a strong culture of curiosity. This in turn has created an environment focused on learning where students and staff are supported to flourish. This session will unpack the Joseph Banks Secondary College story, including how our Discovery Centre (our Library) is the hub for developing curiosity, literacy and numeracy.
