Our School

Balgowlah Boys Campus dates from 1st July 1954. It is located on a prime site of more than five acres in the heart of Balgowlah.

The school has a proud history of academic achievement, where students have gone on to be high achievers in business, art, science and the sporting arena. Many of these students are remembered today through the honour roll in the main office and the plaques that give areas of the schools their name and inspire our current students.

Today, as a campus of the Northern Beaches Secondary College, there is a wave of new opportunities for current and future students. The college structure brings the opportunity of the widest choice of Stage 6 subjects than any other institution in NSW. It also provides access to a plethora of co-educational opportunities through leadership, music and the arts to ensure continued success for our students in the future.
