Newcastle High School is a government-funded co-educational comprehensive secondary day school, located in Newcastle West,[5] a suburb of Newcastle, in the Hunter region of New South Wales, Australia.

Established in 1929, the school enrolled approximately 1,080 students in 2018, from Year 7 to Year 12, of whom nine percent identified as Indigenous Australians and nine percent were from a language background other than English.[3] The school is operated by the NSW Department of Education in accordance with the education curriculum, as determined by the New South Wales Education Standards Authority. Newcastle High School has one of the largest Special Education Unit in the Entire Hunter Region. As of October 2020 the principal is Janene Rosser.[4]


Newcastle High School, which began in 1976, is the last of three schools that shared a similar and sometimes common history:

The school occupies the campuses previously occupied by two girls' high schools: Hunter Girls' High School and Newcastle Girls' High School. The campus of Newcastle Boys' High School became non-selective and co-educational in 1977 and changed its name to Waratah High School that same year. Later it became Waratah Technology High School, then Callaghan College Waratah Technology Campus.
