Philip’s Christian College provides quality education in a caring, secure and challenging learning environment based on Christian beliefs, values and practice. The College seeks to acknowledge the potential and uniqueness of each student and aims to provide opportunities for all-round development — intellectual, social, cultural, moral, spiritual and physical. St Philip’s is passionate about the pursuit of excellence in all areas of school life, particularly academic achievement, performing arts, sporting events and Christian lifestyle.

The Gosford Campus is divided into three sub schools: Junior School (P–4); Middle School (5–8); Senior School (9–12). In addition the Narnia Christian Preschool is conveniently situated in this property which means the College can provide care and education for children from preschool to Higher School Certificate level.

Facilities: The campus is serviced by a modern computer network, science and computer laboratories, hospitality centre and music and drama rooms. In addition, the school has a Preschool to Year 12 library, multi-purpose hall and playing field.

Electives Years 7 to 12: Business Studies, PD/H/PE, Physics, Chemistry, Textiles, Biology, Drama, Modern and Ancient History, Hospitality, Design & Technology, Visual Arts and Music.

Sport: On top of its normal school sporting program, which includes swimming, cross-country, and athletics carnivals, there are many opportunities for students to participate in a wide variety of extracurricular sports. Students also have the opportunity to individually trial for a wider variety of zone and state teams and even Combined Independent School teams.

Extracurricular activities: Choir, bands, CD production, debating, drama, Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme, musicals, sports teams. There is also participation in various local and zone competitions and eisteddfods.

Welfare and personal development: Pastoral care is an all-encompassing experience that involves helping the students to develop spiritually, academically, socially, emotionally and physically. With student advisers, a school counsellor and teacher support, it is primarily about listening, guiding and caring. The college’s “level system” is a “welfare net” that keeps track of students in a proactive way. In addition, there is a camping program, a peer support program and workshops (such as “positive girls’ identity” and “mentoring boys” workshops).
