Tumbi Umbi High School has been open and developing since 1997. At the present time classes cover the years 7-10 years. The Minister for Education and Training has announced that the school will be one of the junior campuses in the Tuggerah Lakes College which will begin operating in 2002. Students at Tumbi Umbi High School start in year 7 in a middle school approach to high school with limited movements and home teachers. Middle schooling is based on current educational research and reflects best educational practice. The school is currently the only secondary school part of the Priority Schools Funding Program in the Central Coast District and this reflects the diverse economic area from which we draw students. Our welfare structure reflects the needs of students and is based on students owning their own behaviour (Choice Theory). Staff and students are being trained in welfare to ensure ongoing needs of our students are met.
