The current principal is Wendy Johnson, who commenced her term at the beginning of 2008. She was previously the principal of Victor Harbor High School and has experience as a teacher, administrator and district director.
Robert Knight, who started at the school in 1992, retired as principal at the end of 2007. He helped improve the standing of the school with features such as a large international student program (under the Intensive Secondary English Course) involving many students from China, Japan and a variety of south-east Asian nations; a selective program for gifted students entering high school (Ignite Programme, initiated as the SHIP program in 1998) and the adoption of both the local SACE and International Baccalaureate Diploma Programs. Knight's term saw enrolment increase by 700 students to 1400 (many of whom are from areas outside the school's zone, or from overseas), after it came close to being closed by the State Government in the mid-1990s due to falling enrolments.

Famous quotes containing the word principal:
“The principal difference between love and hate is that love is a irradiation, and hate is a concentration. Love makes everything lovely; hate concentrates itself on the object of its hatred.”
—Sydney J. Harris (b. 1917)
“There are three principal means of acquiring knowledge available to us: observation of nature, reflection, and experimentation. Observation collects facts; reflection combines them; experimentation verifies the result of that combination. Our observation of nature must be diligent, our reflection profound, and our experiments exact. We rarely see these three means combined; and for this reason, creative geniuses are not common.”
—Denis Diderot (17131784)
“The principal office of history I take to be this: to prevent virtuous actions from being forgotten, and that evil words and deeds should fear an infamous reputation with posterity.”
—Tacitus (c. 55c. 120)
