One College Many Opportunities

As the Executive Principal of Hastings Secondary College, I am proud to work alongside and support Ms Meaghan Cook and Mr Ian Ross, our Campus Principals in building an inclusive educational community that is characterised by excellence, innovation, opportunity and success for every student in our care. Hastings Secondary College is building a reputation as an educational leader in secondary education, locally and in NSW.

Through the outstanding work of our teachers and support staff, Port Macquarie Campus and Westport Campus are places where we build and maintain high expectations for student learning and achievement, and where every student is known, valued and cared for.

This is evident in our high-quality educational programs, our co-curricular programs and our wellbeing programs for students. In addition to this, we are unapologetically a learning community that builds on strong parent and wider public expectations through supportive and effective partnerships. Partnerships that reflect that it takes a village to raise a child.

Achievement starts with innovative opportunities for our students as they transition into Year 7. Students can apply for one of our Academies in STEM, Creative Industries or Sport. Achievement builds as students progress through to Year 12 through success in academic, sporting and cultural endeavours. Our Year 7 and 8 Zenith program, our supported learning programs for students with special needs, our Pathways to Senior Success program have one element in common. These opportunities encourage our students to fully participate in their learning and do their personal best as they participate in the life of our College and the wider Hastings community. 

Following the release of the Higher School Certificate results at the end of 2019, Hastings Secondary College was recognised as the third highest achieving school in NSW in a report published by the Sydney Morning Herald. This result recognises the growth in learning by every student and is a result of quality teaching and the innovative programs offered by the College.

I welcome your enquiries about enrolling your child at Hastings Secondary College and to join with us on the educational journey that shapes each young adult’s growth as 21st-century learners and outstanding Australian citizens.
