Arthur Phillip - The City High School


Arthur Phillip High School is located in the heart of Parramatta.  Our coeducational city school caters for students from year 7 to year 12. We provide outstanding teaching and learning programs and our students consistently achieve outstanding HSC results.

Arthur Phillip High School has always been a popular school: parents appreciate the opportunities students have to learn using laptops in a wireless environment. Our aim is to engage students using the technologies of their 21st century digital world.  Year 7 students use laptops and participate in an after school homework centre where staff assist them to manage their homework and assignments in their transition to high school.

Our priority is to ensure that each student develops literacy and numeracy skills so that they are able to achieve success in whatever career they choose to pursue.

We believe that parents are an integral part of our school community and engage with them in a range of ways. In today’s busy world we have opened the door to our school through the online environment. Our parents are able to access up to date information about their child’s achievement and about school events including homework and assessment tasks.
