Principal’s Welcome

Barrenjoey High School’s vision is to consistently deliver quality education within a safe and nurturing environment where we foster opportunities for students to excel in their individual areas of interest.

Through community collaboration and partnership, Barrenjoey aims to develop respectful future citizens, leaders and lifelong learners with self-awareness, pride, confidence and resilience. We aim to provide an individually tailored school experience that is created from consistent processes and innovative strategies that are enriched with dynamic teaching practices. Barrenjoey supports the wellbeing of all students while consistently rewarding student effort, setting high expectations and promoting academic rigour. Barrenjoey is a comprehensive centre for academic and creative excellence.

Barrenjoey continues to promote our vision of providing a school experience where Respect, Effort and Challenge is highly valued. Students respect the subjects they study, the content, teachers, environment and themselves, where effort is expected, valued, recognised and celebrated and where students see the worth in challenging  themselves to ‘be the best they can be’.
