HSC Disability Provisions

Dear H.S.C. Parents or Carers,

In order to be considered for Disability Provisions in HSC examinations, applications have to be submitted by the school before the end of Term 1, Week 11, Friday 8th of April. A number of parents have already contacted the school regarding the necessary paperwork. The Year Advisor, Mr Robert Klein will be handling this process.

Parents or care givers need to ensure that medical documentation is submitted, in digital format, to me by the end of Term 1, Week 11, Friday 7th April. The application has to be completed by the school, online, and submitted with extensive documentation. Parents and care givers are required to supply supporting medical documents from the relevant practitioner that confirm diagnosis of a particular existing condition. The documents need to be current, that is, less than 12 months old. 


Disability provisions provide studnets who have special needs with practical support in the H.S.C. examinations. Student's special examination needs are usually ongoing and a number of the students have been receiving disability provisions in school examinations since Year 7. It must be stressed that although the students may have been provided with disability provisions in the past, it is NOT assured that the Board of Studies (BOS) will necessarily grant any provisions at all. In recent years the BOS has drastically tightened the allocation of such provisions. 

Please refer to and download the following form and return it to the school as soon as possible.

As a smaller secondary school located in Northern Turramurra in Northern Sydney, Ku-ring-gai High School is able to offer a very personalised and individual approach to supporting student learning and achievement. Often called “the best kept secret on the North Shore” due to our size and outstanding academic results, our school is located on the edge of the very beautiful Ku-ring-gai National Park - a short 12 minute bus ride from Turramurra Station. We have a wide drawing area with the opportunity for students from outside that area to apply for enrolment. Our focus is on creativity, innovation and challenge. Ku-ring-gai is a comprehensive co-educational high school offering the same curriculum as all secondary schools in NSW and enhanced by a special structure which allows for a creativity stream. This Talent Enrichment Program (TEP) offers students who are gifted, talented or interested in creative or performing arts, sports, technology or design options, the opportunity to choose extra classes, often with tutors or coaches to engage them and further develop their skills and interests.



Our innovative and creative approach to education has seen the school well placed to implement the educational changes needed to enable students to meet the challenges faced by 21st century learners.

Ku-ring-gai fosters strong educational connections with local primary schools through our year 5 and 6 Enrichment Day Program as well as Project Based interactive learning activities. Our partnership with the NS5- North Shore Secondary Public Schools has resulted in an increased choice of curriculum and extra curricular subjects for students including leadership days, sports gala days, Duke of Edinburgh, debating and public speaking competitions. Our P&C is active in supporting our educational programs and the updating of resources including our tennis courts and basketball courts. We have an artificially surfaced full hockey pitch with change rooms and lighting located within our grounds. Our fully flood lit soccer fields are used by the Northern District Football Association.

Addressing issues of student engagement and well-being is an important part of our culture. Support programs are offered over the year to students and parents and include such programs as the "Big Fish Little Fish" Program to assist students and parents in the transition from Primary School to High School. The “Managing HSC Stress“ has been particularly helpful to our year 12 students and their families. A strong student support team assists students with learning difficulties.


Small personal morning teas are held a couple of times per term where families meet the Principal and have a school tour. This allows families to see the school in operation and to meet with teachers and students in an informal climate.
