Blakehurst High School serves its community as a coeducational comprehensive high school with specialist languages status. In 2000 our school community has reaffirmed the following values: We value a learning environment which: Ensures quality learning with the skills and attitudes of lifelong learning for all students; empowers students to take responsibility for their learning and behaviour; supports a valued, professional staff committed to continuing learning; encourages active and informed parent and community involvement in all areas of their school. 

Students at Blakehurst High School are drawn from the Primary feeder schools of Baldface, Blakehurst, Carlton South, Connells Point, Hurstville and Hurstville South. 

An increasing number of students seek enrolment from outside the local area drawn by the school's comprehensive and coeducational nature and by the very broad curriculum. 

Students of all abilities and backgrounds learn in an inclusive, harmonious learning environment.
