The Freshwater Senior Campus provides an educational opportunity not previously available to students on the Northern Beaches of Sydney.

Students can take advantage of state-of-the-art facilities, on-site course provision through the TAFE NSW - Northern Sydney Institute and the opportunity to access first year courses through our partnership with the University of Technology, Sydney. Students can participate in the unique experience of engaging in a senior learning environment.

Facilities at the campus are spectacular. They include general learning spaces including seminar and break-out rooms adapted to meet the needs of senior students. Our technology provision is world class and we have negotiated an agreement with TAFE NSW - Northern Sydney Institute for the provision and maintenance of our technology infrastructure. A 250 seat Performance Theatre, national standard gymnasium and music centre with adjoining practice rooms positions us to provide a breadth of quality learning experiences for our students.

Special features of the campus curriculum include the provision of a Welfare Program structured around a timetabled Student Mentoring Program involving all students, as well as a Tutorial Program for Year 12 students.

The teachers who have been appointed to the Freshwater Senior Campus have completed a Workplace Learning Project focussing on the unique demands of teaching in a senior learning environment.
