Principal's Message

Welcome to Blakehurst High School's website.

Blakehurst is a largeYear 7 to 12 school with over 1100 students, located in the southern suburbs of Sydney.

The school prides itself on its outstanding academic record, with excellent results in external assessments such as NAPLAN, the School Certificate and Higher School Certificate. Blakehurst is considered one of the leading comprehensive high schools in the Sydney Region.

Our students come from a wide range of backgrounds and nationalities. We are proud of our inclusiveness. Blakehurst High is seen as a lighthouse school in the area of student welfare i.e. it leads the way for other educational institutions.

Staff at Blakehurst High School are well trained and very hard working. Parents often comment on staff professionalism and willingness to help. Staff are totally committed to continual improvement in teaching and learning in order to achieve the best educational outcomes for their students. All staff are involved in ongoing, targeted professional learning to achieve this aim.

Blakehurst High School has a vibrant P&C organisation which actively involves itself in the operation of the school.

I feel very privileged to be the Principal of such a wonderful school.

My aim for Blakehurst High School is to continue to build on its excellence; to work with the school community and improve what we already do well.  Recent academic results show that this is happening and that the staff is committed to ensuring it continues.

I am sure that by working together with the whole school community, we can make Blakehurst High School even better than it already is today.

Please feel free to contact the school or myself if you require further information.

Yours faithfully

Sophie Kapsimalis
