Thank you for your interest in Central Lancaster High School. Our website will give you an overview of our school but there really is no better way to find out about our great school than to pay us a visit.


I am proud to be the Acting Principal of CLHS, working closely with our students and families, committed teachers and our whole community to ensure that we strive to reach our aim that every student at Central SHINES.

We are ambitious for our school and its students and we are focused on our aim by ensuring that together we focus on:

  • Setting the highest expectations
  • High quality teaching in every lesson
  • Individual progress for every student
  • Nurturing respect within our school community
  • Embracing our wider community; locally and globally
  • Shaping futures

We have high standards and expectations here at Central which are very well supported by our caring and supportive team of committed staff. Our relationships with our students, parents and wider community are very strong and enable us to maintain a stable foundation to develop and improve our school. We place a great emphasis on uniform, behaviour, attendance and punctuality. We are continually working to raise these standards to the highest level to best support our students.
