About our school

Our school consistently strives for excellence.

We service a dynamic and diverse community as part of the New South Wales Department of Education network of schools.

We work closely with our local education services and we design learning to build 'Respect, Responsibility, and Safety' in all of our students, within our beautiful historic buildings.

Our principal, Mark Davies leads a community of school leaders, highly professional teaching staff and a population of over 325 students to work together as a team to create a culture that is positive, welcoming and above all places the academic and social needs of our students at the front and centre of what we do.
