Welcome to the website of Christian Brothers’ High School Lewisham. Since 1891 the school has been providing a top quality, affordable, values-based education to the young men of the Inner West of Sydney and beyond.
CBHS is much more than a great school. In keeping with its rich faith-filled past, it now has all the energy and vitality of a modern Catholic school in the Edmund Rice tradition. It is an inclusive and innovative school that is responding creatively to meet the wide range of needs of individual students who represent the full spectrum of a multicultural and diverse Australian population. The school will continue to provide a vision into the future where people of all countries and backgrounds have equal opportunities, equal treatment and the dignity and comfort of knowing they are supported and loved.
In this sense Christian Brothers’ High School is truly a Gospel place – a place of good news. The young men of this school continue to be open to ongoing education of their hearts and minds so that they can be truly men of faith and learning.
In recent years, the outstanding academic, social, religious and sporting reputation of the school has been significantly enhanced with the spending of approx $16 million on new buildings and renovations, and extensive reviews in teaching and learning and pastoral care.
The school is also very proud of students who do not receive an ATAR but excel in subjects such as Hospitality (in our new state-of-the-art Hospitality facilities), Marine Studies, Entertainment, Digital Photography and Business. Our Diverse Learning Centre deserves its excellent reputation for the outstanding service it provides for students who require extra help and those who are gifted and talented.
In conclusion, partnership and right relationships are core to life at CBHS. By living out the values of the Edmund Rice Education Australia Charter, CBHS successfully creates a caring professional learning community that is based on the values of the Gospel and the dream and Charism of Edmund Rice.
