The Western Access Program started in 1990 and included central schools from Peak Hill, Yeoval, Tullibigeal, Trundle, Tullamore, Tottenham, and Trangie. The development of the program was to link several schools from rural and remote schools in the west of NSW and allow them to remain in their local communities while completing their HSC.
In 2004, all Access schools accross NSW were upgraded to allow for courses to be delivered using video conference technology. In 2010, Western Access grew to provide HSC curriculum to over 15 schools with Peak Hill Central School as the 'hub' school. Western Access is a connected learning community that has led the way in the development of connected learning pedagogy and the use of various technology such as telematics, video conferincing and interactive whiteboards.
Today, Western Access has over 44 subjects fully resourced and supported.
