Talented Sport Program

The Hunter Sports High School Talented Sports Program (TSP) is designed to provide students who excel in particular sports with elite coaching and an academic framework that enables them to reach both their academic and sporting goals.

The program aggregates talented young sportsmen and women from the Hunter and Central Coast in the one school and provides them with:

  • Elite coaching
  • A teaching staff supportive of the unique challenges of the sporting champion
  • The opportunity to complete their secondary education in the company of peers with similar aspirations, lifestyle and interests

The Talented Sports Program provides students with an opportunity to attain their optimum potential in their chosen sport. It enables them to hone their special talent and obtain a pathway to the Australian Institute of Sport as well as state, national and Olympic representation.

The school's curriculum provides students with maximum opportunities to achieve both their academic and sporting goals. No longer will education have to be sacrificed to ensure sporting success.

The provision of HSC pathways enables students to balance their education and sporting commitments by completing their HSC over several years.

Students participating in a Talented Sports Program are contracted to maintain satisfactory progress in their academic curriculum. A student found to be unsatisfactory at consecutive academic reviews will be withdrawn from the TSP and placed on an improvement program to assist them in restoring their satisfactory status.

Students applying for a Talented Sports Program placement must demonstrate elite ability in a particular sport and must satisfy high standards in attitude, work habits and academic achievement.

All students seeking placement in a TSP are required to submit an application form. The selection process will include a trial in the nominated sports in addition to an examination of their school reports.
