Picton High School


Thank you for your interest in the new Picton High School project.

The project page you are trying to access is not being updated as we are currently developing a new website for School Infrastructure NSW featuring major works project information. This is not a reflection of the project's progress, but a way for us to consolidate information and ensure the greatest accuracy is provided to the public.

We appreciate your patience while we work to deliver this renewed and user-friendly information hub for our new schools and major capital works upgrades. The new project website site will be ready by December 2017. 

In the meantime, please direct any questions regarding the progress of this project to schoolinfrastructure@det.nsw.edu.au.

We thank you for your understanding and look forward to sharing more information with you soon.

We are currently planning to redevelop the Picton High School. The key drivers for the project are:

  • increase of permanent facilities to accommodate 1500 students
  • development of a masterplan to cater to an additional 500 students
  • expansion of existing core facilities and construction of new core facilities; these include:
    • covered outdoor learning areas (COLAs)
    • library
    • administration
    • hall refurbishment
    • student/staff and support facilities
    • refurbishment of various existing buildings
    • replacement of all demountable buildings with new permanent learning facilities
    • new special education facilities
    • upgrade to existing bus and car pickup, and drop-off area to increase the safety for all users.

Consultation will be extensive with the school and broader community. A Project Reference Group (PRG) meets regularly to review the design criteria, education principles, future-focused learning and proposed design development through discussions focused on the future operation of the school. Information sessions, and department specific workshops, have been held with teaching staff and students to establish what works well now, what can be done better and the requirements of the redeveloped school. These will continue throughout the design development to ensure the result meets the school's objectives and education principles.

A business case has been developed and agreed with by the department, which defines the proposed areas to satisfy the redevelopments needs with capacity to accommodate the projected increase in enrolments.
