St. Augustine’s RC High School was founded in August 1969. It was created on the Comprehensive School model by the merger of two existing Catholic schools: Holy Cross Academy, a selective secondary school which was established in 1907, and the non-selective St Andrew’s Junior Secondary, which opened in 1962. St Augustine’s moved to its present site serving the whole of the west of the city in August 1969.
The new school is named after St Augustine of Hippo.
St Augustine's moved onto a shared campus with Forrester High School in January 2010. The new building is situated on the former football pitches of the school.
