COMMUNITY UPDATE: Hornsby-Berowra Co-Ed High School consultation



Have your say about high school education in the Hornsby-Berowra area

The school community is taking part in community consultations relating to educational offerings for years 7-12 in the local area.

The NSW Department of Education wants to your views about high school enrolment decision-making and feedback on a range of proposals for future arrangements at Asquith Girls and Asquith Boys high schools. This includes:

 A. Retaining the existing arrangement where families can choose  between Asquith Boys or Asquith Girls high schools and one existing co-educational high school (either Kuring-gai High School or Turramurra High School as per designated intake areas).

B. Reclassifying Asquith Boys and Asquith Girls high schools to  become two separate standalone medium-sized co-educational high schools, each servicing their own exclusive intake area community.

C. One large co-educational high school model spread across the existing Asquith Boys and Asquith Girls High School sites, comprised of one junior campus (Years 7, 8 and 9) and one senior campus (Years 10, 11 and 12) servicing a large intake area community.

Please note, in options B and C, Ku-ring-gai High School and Turramurra High School would each service their own exclusive intake area community, no longer sharing geographic drawing areas with single-sex high schools.

Surveys and workshops are confidential and cannot be used to identify any individual.

Students, parents/carers and staff from local high schools and primary schools can participate in the consultation process. The local community and special interest groups will also be invited to have their say.

How to have your say

Who How to get involved
High school students

Online survey: Teachers will provide the link to the survey to be completed during school hours.

If you do not want your child to participate in the survey, please notify us by replying to this email. Please include your child’s name and year.

High school parents and carers

Online survey: Please complete the online survey (once only) for parents and carers.

Workshop: Register via this link to participate in the online workshop.

Please note: if you have a younger child enrolled at a public primary school in the Hornsby-Berowra area, you may prefer to attend the primary school parent/carer workshop. You will receive a registration link for that workshop from your primary school. 

I encourage everyone to have their say in by participating in the survey and/or workshops. Your voices are so important to the future of education in our local community.
