St Philip's Christian College - Cessnock - NSW

A Voice for Christian Education


St Philip's Christian College - Cessnock - NSW

St Philip's Christian College Cessnock is located in the heart of the Hunter Valley on a 42-hectare site on Wine Country Drive, Nulkaba. It is a rapidly growing Independent school with almost 1200 students K-12. The College has experienced rapid growth over the past few years and will continue to expand to 1,400 students and beyond.

A key priority of our College is to ensure our education is geared towards preparing students for the challenges of today’s world i.e., developing the learning capacity of every child and shifting the emphasis from teaching to learning. Linked with this is our desire to engage students so that they are connected in relationships with staff and each other and are encouraged to think deeply. We also recognise that education cannot be limited to the classroom and so must involve the wider community.

Cessnock is an area rich in opportunities as well as challenges. Our College needs teachers who know that they are called by God to work in such a pioneering field and who are confident in being able to connect with students, staff, parents and the surrounding community. We need teachers, therefore, who share the vision of the College — teachers who have the necessary flexibility, initiative and leadership skills for the task and teachers who are willing to be part of a team committed to forging this initiative in Christian education. Having interests and skills which can be used in extra-curricular activities will be an advantage.
