Callaghan College Wallsend Campus is a specialist school focusing on middle schooling practices that address the specific needs of students in Years 7 to 10. Features of the curriculum include special learning programs and an emphasis on the use of technology in learning. Assessments in all Key Learning Areas compliment the differing learning styles of students.
The school is a Stronger Smarter Hub School which is committed to changing the tide of low expectations in Indigenous Education. We are also a Microsoft National Leading School and we help teachers and school leaders connect, collaborate, create, and share so that students can realize their greatest potential.
The links between the partner primary schools and the campus are extensive, involving effective Stage 3 and Stage 4 teacher interaction and cross site teaching and as such providing continuity of education for students. Extracurricular activities include band, choir, debating, public speaking and a comprehensive sports program.
Student leadership is fostered and supported. There are specialist classes in Years 7 and 8 for Creative and Performing Arts (CAPA) and for Gifted and Talented students.
