Position Information

Canterbury Boys High School (360 students including 85% from a non-English speaking background) is situated in Sydney’s inner–west, and focuses on quality teaching and learning in a supportive environment. Our school has a culture of high expectations that values commitment to learning, where our motto of Truth and Honour is embedded in all aspects of school life. We provide a high quality and well-rounded education, with a strong focus on enrichment and differentiation to challenge and engage diverse learners. We encourage students to take responsibility for their own learning and develop their leadership attributes.

Strong partnerships beyond the school provide a range of learning opportunities, both within the classroom and as extra-curricular activities, which ensure a successful transition from school to further study or vocational pathways. Priority areas in our school plan include building on our strengths in literacy and numeracy, and embedding evidence-based teaching practice. Our staff are passionate about boys’ education, and there is a strong sense of community and belonging from both staff and students.
