Bathurst High School (BHS) or as it is now known, Bathurst High Campus, is a secondary school in Bathurst founded in 1883. Along with Kelso High Campus it makes up Denison College of Secondary Education.
The school is very active in the Arts, with several bands and a range of art, visual design, dance and drama classes. It also has successful debating teams.
Denison College of Secondary Education
After the tragic fire in 2005 which destroyed Kelso High, Denison College was formed to share curriculum, facilities and staff between schools in order to enhance student choice. Bathurst High has since undergone a name change and is no longer known as Bathurst High School, but rather Bathurst High Campus. It is now a campus of Denison College of Secondary Education.
The Astley Cup is a long standing sporting competition between Bathurst High, Orange High and Dubbo Senior College. Bathurst High School won the competition in 2010 after having last won the cup in 1989. The Astley Cup incorporates rugby league, girls and boys soccer, tennis, hockey, basketball, netball and athletics. The Astley cup also includes the coveted Mulvey Cup debating competition. Bathurst High has had a long history of victory in this debating competition, successfully taking out the cup this year.[when?] The school mascots for the Astley Competition are Frosty the bear and Malfoy the dragon.
