Established in 1959, the school enrolled approximately 500 students in 2018, from Year 7 to Year 12, of whom 13 per cent identified as Indigenous Australians and 22 per cent from a language background other than English. The school is operated by the NSW Department of Education; the principal is Jennifer Green.
The school runs a number of innovative programs including The Personal Best program in which students select to be in these classes if they wish to be challenged and encouraged in their learning: The College Program in which Year 11 and 12 sit for three subjects each year, and sit for the Higher School Certificate. Over two years, students complete 6 subjects but this method reduces the stress, enables more subjects to run, and gives both years of senior study purpose and dignity.
