Position Information 

Kingscliff High School, located in the Far North Coast (1100 students, including 12% Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander students) provides comprehensive, engaging and authentic opportunities to the young people of the Tweed Coast communities. Our commitment is to inspire our students to become lifelong learners and aspirational citizens. As a learning community we seek to achieve this though a collective focus on creativity as the driver of innovation, through collaboration as an inclusive means of realising our potential, through confident communication of our ideas and values, and through ongoing critical reflection on the efficacy of our work together.

Our school recognises the importance of student agency and voice in building genuine engagement in deep learning, and this has led to the growing profile of student leadership in our school. This, combined with our work in establishing pathways to community based learning opportunities reinforces our commitment to innovative approaches to teaching and learning.

Kingscliff High School benefits from dynamic and meaningful partnerships with our neighbouring primary schools through the Coastal Learning Community and with our neighbouring public high schools as part of the Tweed 5 network. In addition, we are building strong connections with other schools across NSW who, like us, have formed an ongoing partnership with the 4C Transformative Learning Group.

Our school is particularly grateful for the strong support we receive from our community, exemplified by our energetic and supportive P&C.
