Principal’s welcome

Alex Hughes, Principal

Welcome to Ninestiles, An Academy


At Ninestiles, we are dedicated to providing all our students with the best possible education to allow them to achieve their goals. We do so by actively tackling disadvantage and removing barriers to learning to ensure all students are able to reach their potential.


We believe in the core values of respect, commitment and achievement. Students learn to respect themselves and the community we are part of, showing understanding and tolerance of our culturally diverse student cohort. Our highly skilled and dedicated staff facilitate great learning, and through an inspirational, knowledge rich curriculum they ensure exceptional progress. We believe that excellence can only be achieved through hard work and consistent commitment to improvement. When all of these factors have aligned, we celebrate the achievement that occurs, taking great pride in the academic success of our students and also in their accomplishments in other areas such as the arts, sports and in contributions to the local community.


Students leave Ninestiles as self-respecting, compassionate global citizens able to contribute positively to our local community and wider society.
