We are a partner school of Hastings Secondary College located in Port Macquarie.
Our students achieve outstanding success at the Higher School Certificate with the majority of students continuing to post-secondary study either at university or TAFE.
We offer in partnership with the Port Macquarie Campus an extensive list of subjects to cater for the needs of all students. We have an outstanding trade training centre (Vocational Education) at both campuses to support those seeking accreditation under the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF).
Westport Campus has a student leadership team comprising of students from years 11 and 12 who work with individual year groups and year advisers to support students and staff in school life. Each student leader has undertaken training for this role. Our peer support group under the leadership of the welfare team work exclusively with Year 7 students to provide them with support and friendship while adjusting to high school life.
Westport Campus has a number of innovative programs in place to assist students to adjust to the pressures of high school and teenage life. These programs include a mentoring program for senior students, Links to Learning for various pathways for students wanting to transition to work opportunities.
Our Aboriginal students are supported by both the Clontarf Academy and Sister Connect programs. These programs encourage the students in goal setting, balancing academic and social life and in the planning for the transition to post-school pathways. They have some projects underway and have received numerous awards for their work at school and in the community. Senior students are undertaking TAFE delivered Certificate III courses and completing traineeships in various fields.
We have an outstanding support unit helping students with special needs at the school.
