Secondary School

Students in Years 7 to 12 continue to learn, lead and serve as they prepare for life after school. 

Building on the academic foundations established during our Primary School Program, Secondary students continue to grow physically, intellectually, emotionally and spiritually with the support of dedicated teachers and staff. 

At Bishop Tyrrell, we watch the progression of our students from young children to young adults with pride. We consistently produce graduates who have good character, work ethic and drive. The High School journey is designed to help students reach their ultimate potential. Our focus is on academic performance and preparation for adulthood in the outside world. 

The Bishop Tyrrell Secondary education program is tailored to meet the needs and ambitions of each student. We assist them in accomplishing their goals for post-schooling, whether that may be entry to university, TAFE or the workplace.

We offer a range of subject selections on campus for students in Years 9-12, and can offer distance education for additional subjects through Camden Haven High School, Sydney Distance Education School and NSW School of Languages.

Students in Years 7-12 also participate in our BYOD Program.
