The school is operated by Hawkesbury Independent School Incorporated, formed at the end of 1992 under the Associations Incorporation Act. The school is managed for the association by the Management Committee, a group of parents, teachers and community members elected annually from among the members of the association. This group determines the policies under which the school operates and is responsible for its financial and administrative management. This group is also responsible for the appointment of staff. Parents are encouraged to have an input into the decisions made by the Management Committee, by attending meetings and participating in the discussions.

While broad guidelines regarding the curriculum and policies are formulated by the Management Committee, detailed decisions regarding the day-to-day operation of the school are made by the Principal and the teachers.
