Welcome to the HSPA community of learners.

Hunter School of the Performing Arts is a dynamic learning environment – offering gifted students the unique opportunity to discover their potential in the study of their chosen performing art. Our purpose is to foster and challenge each student as they pursue their love and passion. This commitment is further underpinned by academic excellence in traditional curriculum areas, complementing their capacity to reach their potential as a student. Our wellbeing, sporting and cultural programs offer a rich and holistic learning experience for all children in our village school.

Our school village offers many unique experiences through the lens of the performing arts. Our ensembles in Music and our marching band offer students amazing experiences including world travel. Our drama program offers students national opportunities to expand their skills. Our dance program is extremely competitive and offers exceptional expert coaching and teaching. All students participate in REACH every week to hone their skills and development.

We have a unique place in education in this State – it is the only NSW Public School campus where all students choose to enter via a rigorous audition process. We have students enrolled from Year 3 to Year 12. Student achievement in external examinations and in all performance areas have been remarkable and have established our strong reputation both within the community and across the State. Our school colours and school uniform are recognised, appropriately acknowledged and admired wherever our students represent our school.

If your child would like to cultivate their skills in a truly inclusive learning environment that allows their self expression and exploration of the world of the performing arts, then HSPA is the school for your family. I welcome you to navigate the website for more information and contact us if you would like to attend a school tour.
