About our school

Pendle Hill High School is a coeducational, comprehensive secondary school for students from Years 7 to 12. In total, 62% of students are from a language background other than English, with a total of 49 different languages represented. Our focus is on the delivery of high quality learning in a safe, caring, supportive and well-disciplined environment. Our school serves the Wentworthville, Pendle Hill and Toongabbie communities and was opened in 1965.

A community focus

Pendle Hill High School is a school with strong community involvement and experienced and dedicated teaching, support and administrative staff. Our school is an active member of the Toongabbie Learning Community, with a range of shared programs planned and implemented with our 8 partner primary schools.

We are a school where students, parents and teachers work together to ensure that learning is celebrated, excellence is expected, effort is rewarded and diversity is respected.

Our students benefit from wide curriculum choices, strong and active community links, structured workplace learning opportunities, expert teaching and individual attention. Priorities include literacy, numeracy, the use of technology, student engagement and retention and student leadership.

Support of individualised needs and choice

Individual learning needs are met through a mix of graded and mixed ability classes to better support all students in their learning. Excellence, commitment, achievement, respect and responsibility and the development of positive attitudes to learning and concern for others are actively promoted and rewarded as part of our learning and wellbeing programs.

A comprehensive welfare program integrates our school’s core values of respect and responsibility to support all students in their learning.

Our school uses our resource allocation funding to support a broad curriculum, personalised learning, literacy and numeracy, transition programs and equitable academic opportunities to meet the needs of individual students.
