Leighland Christian School

In 1976 Leighland Christian School commenced with just 36 students in Ulverstone. This year, there are 600 students from Kindergarten to Year 12, with campuses in both Ulverstone (K - 12) and Burnie (K - 6). We are a well established school community committed to Christian family values and providing a significant range of educational opportunities and experiences.

Parents in Partnership

Parents in Partnership (PIP) is the name given to our active Parent group which operates on both campuses.  The PIP group works in partnership with the school in as many areas as possible to enrich our childrens' education. 

Fostering this important partnership with parents and providing an environment of nurturing and caring for students is a key attribute of the school, one which builds a strong sense of community and ownership for everyone who is involved.

Pre Kinder

Leighland Christian School runs a Pre Kinder program to help prepare children for school. This program caters for children who are starting Kindergarten the following year. Please call Burnie on 6430 9000 or Ulverstone on 6425 0999 or email us for further information.

Playgroup and Kindergarten

The School offers Kindergarten for three full days each week at Burnie and Ulverstone with Playgroups also active at both campuses throughout the School year. Join with other new parents and share the experience and excitement of your child’s first year at school. Kindergarten students are to be four years of age by 1 January. Playgroup provides an important stepping-stone for younger children to begin their educational journey.

Senior Secondary

Years 11 and 12 are well established and provide continuity for students without the dislocation at the end of Year 10 to attend a larger college to complete their pre tertiary studies. With small class sizes and a range of subjects available you can expect to be encouraged and supported in your educational goals.

Modern Facilities and Resources

Both Ulverstone and Burnie campuses have excellent facilities. Ulverstone campus offers a modern technology and science area, a spacious and well-equipped resource centre with both campuses providing opportunities for students to access computers and technology-based learning and music programs. These well appointed schools help create a stable and positive environment for your child.

Affordable Education

There are a number of fee payment options available, and fee policies exist to ensure Christian education is not outside the reach of families. For more information enquiries should be made with the Business Manager, Mr David Grey. Please click here to see our Fee Information.
