Future leaders need an educational environment which encourages, nurtures and
provides strong direction for students to reach their full potential. At Sydney
Boys High we equip our young men with the knowledge, skills and values to take
control of their aspirations and turn them into reality.
Our success is built on a combination of strong traditions, innovative
structures, pathways and programs as well as the powerful sense of belonging to
one of the leading secondary schools in New South Wales.
Our past alumni include some of the best known names in Australia and
overseas. Among our esteemed Old Boys are leaders in all fields of endeavour,
from the arts to political life, law, medicine and commerce.
All students begin their leadership training in their early years at the
school with research and critical analysis of leadership philosophies and styles
in the Values Education course.
They are encouraged to engage with the many opportunities available to actively
develop initiative and motivation by contributing to the
School Representative Council (SRC)

resolution if required. The High Resolves Program focuses specifically on

the school, a student is able to build a portfolio of skills, knowledge and
achievements to become a Prefect

demonstrate their comprehensive accomplishments in academia, sport,
co-curricular activities and leadership growth.
