Randwick Boys' High School, a comprehensive boys' school, was established as a full high school in 1949. The school is well located in the eastern suburbs having links to numerous bus services in the area and is close to tertiary institutions. 

The students enrolled at Randwick Boys' High School are drawn from the Eastern suburbs of Randwick, Kensington, Coogee and surrounding areas. The school serves its local community with a high percentage of students coming from out of area suburbs. 

There is a broad range of socioeconomic backgrounds of students at the school. The enrolment is relatively stable. Seventy per cent of the school population is of non-English speaking background, and from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds. One per cent is of Aboriginal background. Students come from as many as 61 countries and speak 69 different languages. 

The school curriculum challenges all students to achieve academic, social and physical potential and encourages students to develop skills for lifelong learning. The staff provide a caring, safe and challenging environment for its students. A broad range of extension/enrichment extra curricular and faculty based activities is offered to students. 

The learning program offered is comprehensive with a very high percentage of students staying on to study in years 11 and 12. The Home School Liaison Officer supports the school by maintaining an active role addressing attendance issues.
