Blacktown Girls High School is a NSW Government school providing a comprehensive high school for girls. Here at Blacktown Girls we emphasise a broad-based curriculum where our students have the opportunity to excel in which ever field of endeavour they feel themselves capable.

    Here at Blacktown Girls High we specialise in Girls' Education.  

 

 We understand how girls learn best. How girls develop both emotionally and physically. All our teaching strategies, subject content, organisation of the School day, length of lessons and programs offered are designed around GIRLS!

We believe that comprehensive education offers the best foundation that students can have to prepare for their future in an environment of continuing and increasing change. Blacktown Girls provides the ideal environment for our girls to develop a life-long love of learning. We are proud to be a semi-selective girls high school.
