NBCS places a high mandate on vision and leadership. We seek to develop core leadership skills and principles in all staff and students – being pro-active in creating new opportunities for leadership capacity and capability to be nurtured and unleashed. Our approach to leadership is highly collaborative. At every level, collaboration is expected, encouraged, and modelled.
Whilst the Board has responsibility for the over-all vision, direction and financial management of the school, responsibility for moving vision to comprehensive strategy and the effective daily functioning of the school is the role of the Principal, supported by the Senior Leadership Team. The Principal, Stephen Harris, is also a member of the NBCS Board.
Senior Leadership Team
The Senior Leadership Team includes the Principal, Deputy and Assistant Deputy, General Manager, Heads of Primary and Secondary, and key leaders of teaching, learning, relationships, pastoral care, communications and logistics.
SLT members are highly capable educators with a strong desire to see students achieve their best. Leadership titles and roles at NBCS are closely aligned to our priorities, and often reflect the nature of their role being a catalyst for change.
