14 hectares of land has been confirmed to open along Quinliven and Port Roads in Aldinga.

On Wednesday, March 6 the State Government confirmed that a new Year 12 school would be built in Aldinga, following months of speculation around the project.

One of a trio of new schools set to be built in South Australia by host up to 1675 students including 100 special school students and a 75 place children's centre.

Education Minister John Gardner said the new school would be welcomed by families in the area.

“Families in the south of Adelaide who wish to send their child to a government school will be pleased to have a state-of-the-art school in their local area by 2022,” said Minister Gardner.

“Demographic analysis shows that this part of the metropolitan area is experiencing significant growth in the number of families with school aged children.

“Careful consideration has been given to the school’s location with respect to nearby recreation facilities and residential development.

The new school is expected to open in 2022; the same year will also see two other schools open in South Australia including one in Whyalla and one in the northern suburbs.
