As a leading co-educational independent school serving the southern Gold Coast, Tweed Coast and northern NSW, Lindisfarne pride ourselves on our high expectations for student achievement and holistic development through the provision of distinctive identity, relationships, learning and leadership that support our staff and families.
Our school values of compassion, wisdom and respect are underpinned by our Anglican traditions where building genuine relationships through generosity of spirit and care for others; gaining knowledge, understanding, skills and character from learning; and appreciating all within our environment are at our core.
While having all the advantages of a K-12 school, we have adopted a “one school, three sub-schools” approach through our Junior, Middle and Senior Schools allowing us to shape the curriculum in accordance with the developmental phases of our students and helps our educators better manage the transition between the six stages of school life. We cultivate learning through relationships, expert teaching, educational research and innovation throughout our three sub-schools that focus on:
- Leadership: creating the competencies that equip us with hope, clarity and direction
- Standards: establishing high expectations that empower student involvement, development, achievement, service and voice
- Collaboration: working together within aligned structures, processes, practices and systems that enable our desired ethos and strategy
At Lindisfarne, we provide a framework for 21st century learning and future-focused, real-world thinking that equips our students for their lives post-school. Our students graduate enabled and empowered both academically and emotionally to assume responsibility for making a positive contribution to the world.
The NSW Curriculum has six stages with content that is different and appropriate for each stage of our students’ development. This is reflected in how we have structured our school into three sub-schools:
- Junior School (Preschool to Year 4)
- Middle School (Years 5 to 8)
- Senior School (Years 9-12)
At Lindisfarne, we deliver rich, high-quality education for our students through structured and stepped programs focusing on academics, creative arts, personal development, sports and co-curricular excellence on a local, national and global level.
