Where do Principals' salaries rank in Australian Society?

The Faifax media has developed a tool using data from the 2015/16 financial year collected by the Tax Office.

This provided ranking of more than 1000 jobs from the highest-earning to the lowest.

It is somewhat comforting to see that School Principals' rank is 61 in this extensive list with an Mean Annual Income of $112,075

As a profession the data also revealed the following breakdown for Principals across the country:

  • 96% of principals are full time workers
  • 4% of principals are part time workers

Higher on the list include the following professions:

  • Rank 31 Member of Parliament with Mean Annual Income of $184,840
