About our school

Hunter Sports High School is a partially selective high school that balances academic excellence with sporting achievement.

Our school is committed to providing every student with educational opportunities and quality resources to achieve academic, sporting and personal success. 

Located on the Pacific Highway in Gateshead, Hunter Sports High School has forged close ties with its community and offers local students and students selected to participate in the Talented Sports Program with a safe, caring and highly supportive environment in which to complete their secondary education.

Local students are drawn from Gateshead, Gateshead West, Windale and Mt Hutton while selected students come from as far as the Central Coast, Hunter Valley and the Port Stephens area, to take part in the widely recognised sports programs the school offers. 

The dedicated staff at Hunter Sports High School are committed to encouraging excellence in all aspects of education and personal development, and the school provides innovative learning programs and support services to ensure all students can reach their full potential. 

Hunter Sports High School, the only designated sports high school north of Sydney, is currently in the early stages of a multi-million dollar redevelopment which will provide the school with state of the art facilities, including new classrooms, administration buildings, sports fields and training facilities. 

Our vision is to be a diverse learning community, encouraging individuality and excellence in a supportive environment that fosters respect, responsibility and success.
