    Bradfield TAFE actually occupies the site that was the original location of North Sydney Girls High School. That school moved across the road to the site previously occupied by Crows Nest Boys High School in the early 90s. There isn’t much of the way of public high schools on the lower north shore as there are a proliferation of private schools. What makes the story even more interesting is that NSGHS and its equivalent – North Sydney Boys – are select schools, so you have to meet certain academic requirements to attend them. Back in my day, if you didn’t get into NSGHS or NSBHS, you had limited options and two of these schools (Crows Nest Boys and Cremorne Girls) have since closed. I guess the kids who don’t opt for a private school need to travel to Mosman or Willoughby to access public high school education, so it is exciting that a new school is opening.

    The new high school’s name is Cammeraygal High School:

    I also have a question about measuring the % of high schoolers in the public and private systems. Private school enrolments tend to be finite; when the school is full, no more enrolments get in. With increasing numbers of high school students in the area and finite private school places, how is the demand for public school places affected? Specifically, comprehensive places in public high schools, given that selective students do not need to be local.

    .id might also like to monitor the emergent information for the new school to move onto the UTS site at Lindfield when it is vacated. There are suggestions that it will be a K-12 school.
