Our Vision

To be a flexible, sustainable and mature learning environment, which empowers our students and inspires life-long learning through authentic experiences. We value diversity and individuality, building independent and resilient students as they progress towards their goals.

Our Values

Respect | Achievement | Diversity | Inclusivity | Opportunity

We are a Campus providing opportunities for students from a diverse range of backgrounds. We are inclusive of differences including cultural background, socio-economic status, disability, age, gender and sexual orientation.

Cyril Jackson Senior Campus caters for Year 11 and 12 students, with mature age students welcome. We offer a wide range of courses and our students have an age range – from 16 year olds working towards school graduation to older adults who are here following their interests.

We pride ourselves on our mature learning environment, our ability to accommodate difference, our commitment to innovation and our flexibility which we can maximise because we are an Independent Public School.

Our staff are continually matching the pastoral needs of students to their educational needs so as to reach a balanced program. We also have the only north of the river, Department of Education endorsed, Intensive English Centre for senior school students. The Intensive English Centre students are mainly migrants and refugees who add a strong multicultural feel to the campus.

We have a flexible timetable structure that permits students to work part-time as well as study. We have a variety of courses offered in our online learning – iLearn Flexible Learning mode and more people are opting for this as it permits full-time work as well as study towards Training or University entrance. We have a uniquely innovative approach to education and offer a range of courses for students of all ages. Our focus is on our students’ academic success through our flexible approach and our emphasis on a mature learning environment.

Annual Report

Our Annual Report highlights the outcomes of our performance from student achievement to Board governance. A range of evidence is presented comprising individual student achievement, Learning Area summaries, whole of Campus achievement in response to the Business Plan and general highlights of the year.

We are proud of the opportunities we have provided for our students and the enthusiasm with which these were accepted. Our teaching and support staff are always available to support our students, with their academic work, their social circumstances and also supporting our international students as they adjust to life in Australia.

Being – Belonging – Becoming epitomises our commitment to ensure that all of our students can be who they are and express their individuality, belong as a member of our community, and become the person they want to be as they transition from us to the broader community.

Business Plan

In preparing the Cyril Jackson Business Plan, extensive consultation has occurred with staff and Board members to determine the strategic direction of the Campus over the next three years.

We are motivated to ensure that this plan supports all students and all staff in making Cyril Jackson Senior Campus a unique and high quality place to learn and to educate. We are keen to ensure that the broader community has a role in supporting our intentions through establishing strong relationships and partnerships in order that our students have access to range of learning opportunities, suited to their future pathways.

We look forward to implementing the plan and achieving our major outcomes.
