Catholic Schools Office Maitland-Newcastle Logo

As a Catholic school system in the Diocese of Maitland‐Newcastle, we aspire to a contemporary, reflective and dynamic approach to education.

We aim to foster the development of each student through the enhancement of inclusive learning environments. Our schools are responsive to the different needs of students and provide opportunities for all students to learn, achieve and grow.

Learning and wellbeing programs are determined by the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) and our staff are appropriately qualified to teach and undertake regular professional development to ensure currency with contemporary practice. Our schools offer a broad range of curriculum choices and students are offered a host of opportunities to engage in co-curricular activities.

Schools endeavour to cater to local community and individual needs, as well as honouring their history and tradition.

Quality learning and wellbeing in diocesan Catholic schools is underpinned by:

  • Contemporary and research-informed pedagogy that is shaped by Catholic principles
  • Professional learning that focuses on strengthening student outcomes and building capacity in staff
  • Schools that demonstrate a culture of continuous improvement
  • A coordinated approach to building student achievement in literacy and numeracy K-12.
