High Potential and Gifted Education

The Department of Education have announced the High Potential and Gifted Education Policy to be implemented across all NSW public schools.

At Newcastle High School we are committed to providing engaging and challenging educational opportunities for all students, while explicitly identifying and addressing the learning needs of high potential and gifted students in the areas of intellectual, creative, social-emotional and physical domains of potential. In 2022, Newcastle High will be implementing a new and diverse range of programs to foster the needs of these learners. 

SAIL Program

At Newcastle High School we are launching the SAIL Program for our 2022 Year 7 cohort - for details see the SAIL Program Booklet. The SAIL class is a supportive environment where students demonstrating academic excellence participate in a program of challenging, accelerated and open ended learning opportunities, engaging assessment and where success is celebrated.

At Newcastle High we are committed to providing engaging and challenging educational opportunities for all students, while explicitly identifying and addressing the learning needs of high potential and gifted students in the areas of intellectual, creative, social-emotional and physical domains of potential, if you are ready to start the application process, complete the SAIL Application forms.

If you are the parent, a student that has demonstrated high potential in one of these areas, please use the Home Nomination form.
