About our school

Callaghan College provides educational opportunities for Year 7 to Year 12 students across three campuses in Newcastle. Our Year 7 to Year 10 students attend Waratah and Wallsend campuses, with our senior students in Year 11 and 12 attending Jesmond Senior Campus. 

This is why our College motto is Collaborating to Empower Learners as all three campuses work together to enhance our students' learning experience.

The College has approximately 2300 students with more than 300 staff. Because of our unique College model, our students have access to a diverse range of activities – from whole of College music, dance and drama productions and sporting carnivals, to enrichment programs in STEM, CAPA, Humanities, Sport and Technology.
