Wollumbin High School, established in 1995, is a small, comprehensive, rural school situated in Murwillumbah.

The school is located in a picturesque setting contributing to the calm environment in which learning takes place. Quality teaching and learning is characteristic of the school's culture and affirmed by our motto 'Together We Learn'. The school is known in the community for providing a safe and respectful learning environment, a strong uniform code and an effective discipline and welfare system.

The professional, experienced, friendly and supportive staff are innovative, student focused and dedicated to providing a full range of curriculum and extracurricular choices for students from Years 7 to 12. Our small class sizes, intensive learning support centre and academic extension classes ensure that all students have the opportunity to succeed in their learning. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students negotiate personal learning plans, are strongly represented in leadership and all levels of achievement within the school.

We work closely with our partner primary schools and actively with the Tweed 5 (Far North Coast) high schools focusing on shared professional practice and opportunities for students. Academic, citizenship, sporting and cultural achievements are acknowledged in the awards structure. Many students achieve at state level in academic, sporting and cultural areas. The annual MADDD concert, animations screening, band and Korean sister school activities provide additional opportunities for students. The Student Representative Council (SRC) is an active leadership group not only within the school, but also within the community. We value and foster home-school partnerships.

Strong parent and community support is evident through our volunteer tutor program and the Quality Portfolio interviews. The Parent & Citizens Association is an active group who work closely with the school to support all students.
