Blacktown Boys High School continues to be recognised as the school of choice for boys in Western Sydney. A positive learning environment with a culture of continual improvement and collegiality drives the best possible learning outcomes for all students. Teachers are seen as lifelong learners who provide high quality teaching and learning, leading to high student growth levels in a safe, challenging environment. As well as embedding essential skills, innovative approaches to the delivery of curriculum are at the forefront of planning, leading to the development of problem solving skills which prepare students for the challenges of the future. Students are engaged, independent and reflective learners who take pride in themselves and their community as they journey from boys to men.
737 students are enrolled across six years of schooling at Blacktown Boys in 2021. The school is situated close to both road and rail transport hubs. BBHS draws on students from the local area and also permits enrolments from further afield, for those seeking a boys-only environment. Blacktown Boys High School has been a Partially Selective high School since 2010, providing for the learning needs of a Gifted and Talented stream, as well as mainstream students and a learning support class. An Inclusive Education Support unit will begin operation in 2021. The school caters for a culturally diverse student population, with high expectations for all. This is demonstrated through inclusive teaching and learning practices for every student. BBHS emphasises a holistic approach through the development of the whole student, with academic, sporting and cultural opportunities, as well as quality extracurricular activities. BBHS enjoys positive working relationships with all major Sydney based universities, and key local and CBD based businesses which provide academic, social and vocational mentoring. Identification of best practice and sharing of skills is fostered through membership of the Nirimba Learning Community.
