Turramurra High School is situated in a well-established residential area on Sydney's North Shore. The school adjoins Lane Cove National Park, providing a quiet bushland environment. The school was established as a co-educational comprehensive high school in 1967. 

Students are drawn from a wide area, and many travel to school by train and/or bus. Nevertheless, the school has close ties with its community, and has a reputation for achievement in academic studies, the creative arts and competitive sport. 

The school has well-established links with nearby Macquarie University, and with nine local business organisations. A longstanding partnership exists with The Whitehouse Institute of Design which has resulted in a unique opportunity for students with the establishment of a Vocational Education & Training (VET) design course to be conducted at the school from 2001. Turramurra High School strives to assist all students and staff to realise their full potential, in all areas of endeavour. 

Our aim is to provide a broad curriculum which offers a wide range of learning activities and experiences, provides flexibility and can adapt to change. A broad and diverse curriculum encompasses traditional core subjects in addition to visual and performing arts, music, technological studies, languages, business studies and personal development. The school is also noted for high achievement in sport, outstanding bands and for the public performance of high quality musical productions.
