As the Principal of Katoomba High School I welcome you to our website and hope that you will enjoy the information offered. As you browse I am confident that you will see that Katoomba High School is a comprehensive secondary school that passionately serves the diverse community of the Upper Blue Mountains. We exist to inspire students to reach their full potential and are committed to developing a culture of high expectations and strong values that nourish the development of creative, confident, accomplished young men and women.

Our school motto, Quality and Creativity, highlights the holistic emphasis of the school and the breadth of our curriculum, leadership and welfare programs prepare students for the opportunities and challenges of the 21st century.

The school is committed to enhancing outcomes for all students through a relentless focus on quality teaching and learning practices that increase student engagement, personalise learning experiences and encourage the pursuit of personal and academic excellence.

The Parents and Citizens Association (P&C) are an important part of the Katoomba High School community. This dedicated group of people continue to work tirelessly to support teachers in delivering quality learning experiences in the classroom. Their outstanding loyalty and advocacy of public education has contributed to the confidence of the local community in the school.
