Principal's Message

As principal of Asquith Boys High School I take pride in continuing  the school's excellent tradition of creating a harmonious, safe and happy environment.

As a parent, or as a prospective parent, it is important to note that we work tirelessly to ensure that every student is known and valued at Asquith Boys High School. This is critical to the overall development and growth of boys, academically, socially and emotionally. If they are happy to come to school then their ability to learn is significantly increased.

I am not only proud of our strength to establish an environment that empowers our students to learn through an excellent welfare program and structure, as well as embracing a broad and engaging curriculum and cocurricular learning opportunities for all of the boys.

All of these opportunities for boys are largely due to the passionate and dedicated staff who strive to engage boys in their learning environment and inspire them to achieve their personal best.

Asquith Boys High School is a comprehensive boys high school in northern Sydney that prides itself on creating an environment of excellence in boys' education and building the character of fine young men. This is largely due to the passionate educators who engage our boys in the learning environment and inspire them to achieve their personal best, partnered with our community recognised excellence in welfare programs and practices.

We offer quality academic and co-curricular opportunities for all of our boys. Academically, Asquith Boys High School has in recent years consistently outperformed boys in other comprehensive high schools. In the 2017 HSC examinations the school achieved results. 19 HSC students were listed as distinguished achievers and band 6 results were achieved in 10 different subject areas. Our Year 7 and Year 9 NAPLAN student results continue to improve with evidence of growth data and Year 8 students also excell themselves in VALID Science Assessments with 63% achieving in the top 3 bands and well above state averages.

Asquith Boys High School is renowned for programs such as whole-school literacy and numeracy, enrichment classes, creative arts and academic scholarships, student leadership and Year 7 personal interest projects which all are entrenched into our learning and school culture. Our students achieve ATARS in the high nineties, with the 2016 Dux award being awarded to Zac Duretto with an ATAR of 99.00. In 2017, for the first time in the school's extensive history, we awarded joint Dux awards to Andrew Morrison and Lucas Zheng for achieving ATAR's of 97.95.

There is an extensive number of co-curricular activities and opportunities available to the students, these include, but are not limited to international football, history and languages tours, Duke of Edinburgh awards and expeditions, environment teams,  Stage and Concert Bands.

Our boys also are instilled with a sense of their membership in a larger community and they welcome opportunities to participate in local Anzac day ceremonies, leadership forums, and fund raise for numerous charity organisations. In 2017 Asquith Boys High School was again acknowledged as the highest fundraising school for legacy in the metropolitan area raising over $10,000 for this charity organisation, and highlighting our students commitment to generously contributing back to society.

Asquith Boys High School is focused and committed to the education of boys through innovative and enriching learning opportunities which cater to their learning needs. Asquith Boys High School prides itself on our tradition of academic, co-curricular and sporting opportunities and is regarded as a school where boys will thrive. The school will soon celebrate our 60th anniversary in 2020, and will continue our proud tradition of serving and educating our community in the immediate and long term future.
