Francis Greenway High School is located at Beresfield and serves a diverse population in the Maitland area. There are currently 720 students who attend the school, 16% of which are of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander descent.
The school forms part of the Gateway Learning Community of schools who, as a group provide a continuous path of learning for all students. In addition, we also have strong links with the University of Newcastle and the Ourimbah Campus.
Francis Greenway High is recognised as providing an inclusive environment where students can achieve their personal best in academic, sporting, cultural, creative, leadership, performance, and social arenas.
A strong wellbeing focus is based on clear, consistent and fair boundaries, high expectations and individual recognition of success.
A strong focus on staff professional development ensures our classrooms are ones where quality teaching is assured, where the curriculum is innovatively taught with a future focused approach.
Parent and carers and community members are an integral part of our approach to developing the whole child. An active P&C participates in making decisions and manages the school canteen. The AECG is a valuable consultative body which supports our Junior AECG.
