Secondary Schools - Sports High Schools

Sports high schools provide opportunities for students who have potential to reach elite athletic levels in a range of sports.

They aim to provide students with opportunities to excel academically and in sport.

Subjects Offered

As with all our secondary schools, Sports High Schools offer subjects that meet the needs and interests of individual students and are in line with the requirements set by the NSW Board of Studies for the School Certificate and Higher School Certificate.


Enrolment will depend on the student meeting special criteria. The high school's principal will identify the criteria to you. You can also discuss these requirements and the suitability of specialist high schools for your child with your primary school principal.
