The aim of education is the knowledge, not of facts, but of values —William S. Burroughs

Join Us at Christian Brothers’ High School Lewisham

We understand boys’ unique learning styles and support each student on their own journey. We are committed to providing quality education to every student throughout their time at the school.

Most boys enter the school in Year 5 or 7, with our largest intake being in Year 5, however we welcome students to enrol in any year if places are available. Each year does only have a strict number of places available, so the sooner you express an interest, the better.

Once an expression of interest has been lodged the school will be in contact with you two years prior to his proposed commencement to request further information and arrange a suitable time for an interview.

CBHS Lewisham considers several factors when offering placement and the principal has the final decision on all enrolments. The most important factor in any enrolment is how the student will live our touchstones of:

  • Inclusive Community
  • Liberating Education
  • Gospel Spirituality
  • Justice and Solidarity
