Plumpton High School is located in an urban area serving a diverse population within a low socio–economic context. There are currently 1070 students who attend the school, representing over 65 different nationalities. This includes 10% Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander (ATSI), 10% Philipino, 10% Indian and 10% Pasifika. Our students are able to take advantage of a range of subjects that include elective choices from year 7 to 12 and a wide variety of VET courses. Extra–curricular opportunities include performing arts, student leadership, science, technology engineering and mathematics (STEM), and the Duke of Edinburgh Awards scheme. The school is widely recognised for its commitment to providing high quality support for Aboriginal programs and education. Our strong community partnerships have been strengthened through our alliance with the Australian Business Community Network (ABCN), Citi Group, Blacktown City Council, Macquarie University, University of Technology (Sydney), Western Sydney University, the Indigenous AFL Academy, and organisations such as Rotary, the Beacon Foundation and the local business community. With committed neighbourhood spirit, we work strategically with our local primary schools (PEC – Plumpton Education Community) to deliver innovative, future–focussed teaching and learning projects and shared values. As a result of our daily work students graduating from Plumpton are highly successful in post-school destinations. In recent years there has been an increasing trend in students gaining early entry to tertiary institutions and employment. In 2019 and 2020 the school was recognised through the Australian Education Awards as an Innovative Schools Winner. In 2019, the Principal was the recipient of Australian (Government) Secondary School Principal of the year. In 2020 the school is an Australian finalist for the Government Secondary School of the year and Best Co-curricula program. Through the situational analysis conducted in Terms’ 3 and 4 that achievement levels in all aspects of NAPLAN indicate the need for intensive targeted interventions for identified groups including but not limited to EALD and ATSI; effective student pathways that effectively support individualised student learning and performance through increased personal responsibility and accountability; the development of shared responsibility within the school community. The school is resourced in a strategic and creative way that enables students and staff to access a range of innovative initiatives designed to support individual and collective capacity.
