For the Whole of Their Life.

Meet the School Principal

Welcome to the St Philip’s Christian College website for the Port Stephens School.  I am delighted that you are interested in learning more about our School.

Selecting the right school for your child is a major decision for every parent. This website has been designed to introduce you to our College and the unique environment it provides for nurturing the development of young people.

St Philip’s is an enthusiastically Christian, non-denominational College dedicated to the highest quality of education.  The founders of our School passionately believed in the need for an independent school that educated the whole child – mind, body and spirit. This website attempts to outline the ways the Port Stephens School actively pursue this vision. 

Whilst websites provide terrific windows into a school, they are inadequate at capturing the true essence of a place. 
With this in mind, may I extend an invitation for you to come and tour our School and explore the rich array of Christian foundations, culture, programs, facilities and staff we have to offer.

Yours in Christ,

Dr Timothy Petterson
Principal
