The isolation that defines this school is unique among isolated schools in New South Wales. The school community is a blending of families whose history is closely linked to the island and families who live and work here for a contracted period of time. Interest in, and support for, the school is very high.

The school hosts a Distance Education Learning Centre that supports those children who wish to complete some or all of their secondary education on Lord Howe Island.
