Key findings from the consultation

While the results of the online community survey supported the proposal to transition Randwick Boys High School to a co-educational secondary school, the views of families, students and staff who would be most directly impacted by the decision did not provide clear support for a change.

The community spoke very strongly about the need to retain the choice of a single-sex public high school for boys in the eastern suburbs, especially given that Randwick Boys High School is the only comprehensive public boys school in the area.

Another important theme to emerge from the consultation was that the community would like to see improvements to all public secondary schools in Sydney’s eastern suburbs. The department will develop a strategy to support secondary public education across all the public secondary schools in the eastern suburbs.
