Open Day

Each year Sydney Boys High School runs an Open Day for all prospective students and their families. An invitation is extended to parents and students of year 4 and 5 students (and all other comers) to visit the school and check it out on our Open Day.

Open Day 2023 at Sydney Boys High School was held on Friday 8 September 2023. The day's activities ran from 9:30 am and finished around 12:00 noon. Details of our 2024 Open Day event will be available in early 2024.

For those who missed the event or would like to hear more about the school, we offer school tours twice per month during school terms, and a video form virtual tour. See below for further information.
