For the Whole of Their Life.

Head of Middle School

St Philip’s Christian College Gosford is a non-denominational, independent, co-educational, Preschool to Year Twelve Christian School.

Formerly Gosford Christian College, this St Philip’s Christian College has provided quality Christian Education to the Gosford community for over forty years.

St Philip’s Christian College, based in the Hunter Region, assumed ownership of the Gosford school in 2007. This group now has a family of six schools, with over 800 staff members and over 5000 students in their care.

Christian schooling continues to be highly sought after by a large section of our community because of the life-giving values that permeate all activities and curriculum in our schools. At Gosford, as with the other St Philip’s schools, we strive to work in partnership with parents to provide children and young people with the knowledge and skills they need to realize their God given potential in every aspect of their lives and to become productive members of their community.

St Philip’s Christian College Gosford is situated at 20 Narara Creek Road, Narara (just north of Gosford), New South Wales, and is 80 kilometres north of Sydney. The College is located on the side of and at the bottom of a hill with a lush bush outlook. The facilities are well established in their core function.

The College already has a strong emphasis on student pastoral care, establishing core learning skills, creative arts performance, and an International Students Program.

College Motto – “The Way, The Truth and the Life”

The Motto is taken from the words of Jesus in John 14:6

"I am the Way, the Truth and the Life; no-one comes to the Father but by me."

Jesus alone is the means by which men, women, girls and boys can come to know, for themselves, our Creator and Father God.

The Middle School caters for boys and girls from Years Five to Eight.

The Middle School has a broad and enriching curriculum, catering for the whole child, but emphasising Academic Achievement and Christian Values. There is a strong tradition of catering for the whole child within Middle School, supporting wellbeing, academic, and spiritual growth. With nine Pastoral Care classes across Years Five to Eight, the role of the Pastoral Care teacher in Middle School plays a pivotal role where they serve to support the whole student.

Stage Three is divided into year groups, with two classes per Year Group. These classes are taught by Primary specialist teachers, with RFF support provided by specialist teachers in CAPA and TAS. A designated explicit teaching block in literacy and numeracy has been established, supported by observations and coaching from the Kindergarten to Year Six Instructional Leader.

Stage Four is divided mostly into year groups, with two classes in Year Seven and two classes in Year Eight. Additionally, a staged-based high ability enrichment class (HAWKE) forms part of the Stage Four team.

The Inclusive Education team work together with teaching staff to support the academic and wellbeing concerns of those who need extra support.
