Book a School Tour

Blackheath & Thornburgh College is a school dedicated to understanding and meeting the differing needs of our students in each phase of their development.

As a small college, every student knows they are an important part of our ‘family’ and from their first day at school, your child will be in an environment where they are valued for what they offer as an individual. We understand them and work with them to help them develop their potential and discover the endless opportunities that await.

Pre-Prep to Year 6

The early years of a child’s life are critical in shaping their subsequent development and our Junior School helps shape young children’s abilities to cope with and benefit from subsequent schooling.
