Cumberland High School has provided excellence in education since 1962. We value our traditions and history while fostering an environment of high academic success and a love of learning.
Our focus is the development of young men and women with the confidence, skills and experience to excel in life beyond school. Excellence, leadership, enrichment and student wellbeing are crucial components of education at Cumberland High School.
We believe that students thrive when they are engaged in a challenging academic program. Our approach is aimed at ensuring our students extend themselves, that they seek out opportunities and are solution focused in their thinking.
The foundation for the above is provided by our professional, experienced and highly committed teachers who are invested in their own professional learning to enable student success.
Cumberland High School offers a diverse curriculum in both traditional and innovative disciplines. We focus on the integration of Information Technology across all subjects while simultaneously delivering on the key skills of literacy and numeracy, preparing students to function effectively in a complex information landscape.
Working actively with ten of the surrounding local schools on a number of combined initiatives including the School Excellence Program, Community of Schools Film Festival, Education Week initiatives and combined professional learning activities for staff, Cumberland High School is proud to be involved in this Community of Schools Program.
We also offer an extensive range of leadership opportunities for students in all cohorts as well as a variety of enrichment programs designed to develop and extend your child’s academic, creative and sporting skills, talents and interests.
Cumberland High School is committed to the ongoing development of each student through our core values of Respect, Responsibility and Excellence.
