Position Information

Riverstone High School is a diverse and inclusive community that is committed to quality teaching, learning, and wellbeing. Our core focus is on extending the resilience and aspirations of our students so that they are prepared for a complex and dynamic world. We are committed to supporting, encouraging, and engaging every member of our school community to thrive through a culture of high expectations. Riverstone High School is situated on Dharug land and is an integral part of the Riverstone community. We provide a quality education for students from diverse cultures and contexts, with many having a multi-generational connection to the school. The cultural demographic of the school has expanded significantly over recent years, with 45% of students now representing a language background other than English, 25% English as an additional language or dialect. 11% students identify as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander. With a current enrolment of 760 students and a staff of 90, the school is experiencing substantial growth as residential developments expand within the North West Growth Area.

The school prioritises partnerships with our local primary schools. These relationships ensure continuity of learning and provide a smooth transition for students starting their high school journey. With rapid growth in the area, we welcome and support new families to the Riverstone High School community throughout the year. Riverstone High School provides a broad curriculum for students from Years 7 to 12, taking advantage of future focused learning spaces. Stage 6 students have the opportunity to remain at Riverstone High School for their HSC studies which incorporates a wide selection of subjects including Vocational Education pathways. Additionally, students have the option of accessing Nirimba Collegiate educational opportunities.

Students in the Inclusive Education Unit have the opportunity to integrate into mainstream electives and senior courses through individualised, student-centred patterns of study.
