Our Schools

There are 33 Catholic schools in the Diocese of Bathurst, educating more than 9200 students from Kindergarten to Year 12.

Our schools range from small, rural primary schools in country towns through to large, secondary schools in regional cities, yet they all share a commitment to fostering both Gospel values and academic excellence.

Bishop Michael McKenna has established a Catholic Education Council as his chief advisory body for developing policies in this important work of the Diocese of Bathurst. The Council's work will be devoted to the oversight of the Catholic schools system, as well as to the catechesis of Catholic children and young people more generally. Father Paul Devitt, Episcopal Vicar for Catholic Education, is the President of the Council, Mr Paul Crennan (Bathurst) is the Chair.

Our teaching staff enjoy a strong, supportive, teaching environment and we actively seek teachers who are not just dynamic and innovative educators, but who are also deeply committed to the mission of the Church. 

Schools of the Bathurst Diocese operate within an inclusive framework, ensuring all children receive the support they need to successfully participate and achieve as learners. Our schools cater for students who have a diverse range of personal characteristics, and we believe this diversity enriches the communal life of our schools. We endeavour to meet students’ diverse needs through available support networks. One particular area of support is The Josephite Centre which is the Diocesan Diagnostic Assessment and Intervention Centre, it provides access to many specialists and its services are available to all of our schools.The Centre provides various pathways to support students with complex learning needs, allowing them to access specialist support from a variety of experts.
