New Public High School to be Built in the Heart of Rapidly Growing Jordan Springs

Last month, on Friday 9th February, the Hon. Prue Car MP alongside the Principal of Jordan Springs Public School, Mrs Kylie Walker, announced the site of Jordan Springs High School.

The new school will be in the heart of Jordan Springs, located on the corner of Armoury Road and Infantry Street. The high school will be a short five-minute drive from Jordan Springs Public School.

Jordan Springs High School is planned to open on Day 1, Term 1, 2027, with a capacity for 1,000 students. This was a key Labor election commitment and forms part of a $3.5 billion investment in educational infrastructure for Western Sydney.

The record investment in Labor’s first budget begins the job of undoing years of neglect under the former Liberal National Government, which failed to properly plan for schools to meet the needs of families in Sydney’s growth areas.

The NSW Labor Government’s targeted investment in growing communities will ensure working families have access to a world class public education.

Ms Car, Deputy Premier, Minister for Education and Early Learning and Member for Londonderry said, “this is fantastic news for the Jordan Springs community, who fought for years for local public schools and under Labor will finally get a local public high school.

“In three years’ time, a brand new high school will be located here in Jordan Springs to serve the growing communities of Jordan Springs and Ropes Crossing.

“The former Liberal National Government failed communities like Jordan Springs where rapid residential development was approved without proper planning or investment for local essential services like public schools. I cannot wait to share progress on building this brand new high school as we get on with the job of delivering it.”

Designs for the new school are already underway, with acquisition of the new site to be finalised shortly. The new high school will accommodate families of the rapidly growing Jordan Springs, ensuring quality education for all.
