About Avondale School
Avondale School is located in the west Lake Macquarie district, just north of Morisset. 45 minutes north of Gosford and 50 minutes south of Newcastle. Set on a 17-hectare bushland campus students enjoy spacious grounds and sporting areas with modern facilities. Educating students from Pre-school to Year 12 in a caring, Christian environment, we pride ourselves on our wealth of history and success in mentoring students to be outstanding citizens in our communities. We are owned and operated by the Seventh-day Adventist church.
We are very proud of our students achievements. In 2015 Avondale School was one of only two schools in the catchment to achieve a ranking in the Top 200 schools in NSW. 47 out of the 289 separate exams undertaken produced Band 6 results (8.7%), setting a new record for Avondale School (up from 5% in 2014). 13 students out of the 2015 cohort of 49 (27%) achieved a band 6 result. Almost 70% of our cohort achieved at least one Band 5 or Band 6 result. We had 2 of our VET students place in the top 10 students in NSW. Avondale School offers a number of academic and VET scholarships for students in Years 11 and 12. Scholarships must be applied for when a student is in Year 10. The awarding of scholarships is subject to an interview, followed by assessment by a selection panel. Year 11 2017 positions listed with School Places are for students wishing to apply for a Scholarship.
