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, which has led to the growing profile of student leadership in our school. This, combined with our focus on a positive learning culture which respects the learning traditions left to us by the traditional owners and custodians of the land on which our school is built, enables our learning through flexible curriculum delivery, innovative pedagogy and strong community partnerships.

We look forward to working with Schools Infrastructure NSW in a significant redevelopment of our site, resulting in future focused learning spaces which will further enable all members of our learning community to achieve outstanding learning outcomes.

Kingscliff High School benefits from dynamic and meaningful relationships 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 enjoy strong connections with other schools across Australia who, like us, have formed an ongoing partnerships with the 4C Transformative Learning Group and the Future Schools Alliance.

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