- Batemans Bay High School is a NSW State school which commenced operation in 1988 and draws students from Tomakin through the beach suburbs and Mogo, to Durras in the north. Our "feeder" schools are Batemans Bay Primary, Broulee Primary, Mogo Primary, St Bernard's Primary and Sunshine Bay Primary Schools. We have a student population of 850 in years 7 to 12.
- The school philosophy is based on giving recognition and credit to students, at all levels of ability, where credit is due. This is done partly through a system of achievement awards and levels recognised at twice yearly award Days.
- The School prides itself on the diversity and range of curriculum offered to students. Students in the senior school have the opportunity to follow the usual academic pathway or may choose to follow a vocational pathway which places more emphasis on work-related skills. Mature age students are actively encouraged to return to either full-time or part-time tuition.
- Being a relatively new school, our facilities are modern and in excellent condition. Indeed, our computer facilities are among the best in the state with all computers networked allowing students access to all software as well as two 7 drive CD-ROM banks and library enquiry from any point in the school.
- Students have a wide range of sport activities to choose from, including archery, cycling, surfing. Our students partcipate in almost all state competitions and are currently NSW and Australian Girls Indoor Soccer champions.
- Our school has a significant number of Aboriginal students and has an Aboriginal Education Assistant for three days per week, to support the school in assisting Aboriginal students. The AEA also provides a link between the school and the Aboriginal parents and community by counselling Aboriginal students, establishing community contacts, advising and assisting other teaching staff, and liaising with parents.
- Each year on the last weekend in August, the school community hosts a Business Expo and Field Day. This gives local businesses the opportunity to exhibit their products and services in one location. On both days, entertainment and activities are provided by students, staff and parents in a carnival-like atmosphere.
