The school is located in a rural area of Sydney's north in a nine hectare bushland setting and is served by bus transport. Student intake comes from thirty primary schools scattered throughout the local government shires of Hornsby, Baulkham Hills and Hawkesbury. 

Galston High is in a unique position as a comprehensive state high school, competing with more than fourteen private schools, four selective schools and one technology high school. The local community prides itself on Galston High's continued ability to maintain an extremely high profile in academic, sporting and cultural achievement. 

Over the past several years, the Vocational Education and Training (VET) focus of Galston High School has been enhanced and in 2000 the school taught the five VET framework courses - Hospitality Operations, Information Technology Support, Retail Operations, Business Services and Primary Industries.

The training of staff and the teaching of these courses has emerged as a prominent feature of the school, whilst at the same time, the balance with academic achievement has been maintained to provide for students aspiring to tertiary education.
