Hurlstone Agricultural High School upgrade (New selective high school in Glenfield)
This page relates to the upgrade of the existing Hurlstone Agricultural High School to create a new selective high school in Glenfield.

The NSW Government is investing $6 billion over the next four years to deliver more than 170 new and upgraded schools to support communities across NSW. In addition, a record $1.3 billion is being spent on school maintenance over four years, along with a record $500 million for the sustainable Cooler Classrooms program to provide air conditioning to schools. This is the largest investment in public education infrastructure in the history of NSW.
A redevelopment at the Hurlstone Agricultural High School site in Glenfield has been completed.
The new modern facilities contain flexible and innovative, technology-rich teaching spaces which will create dynamic learning experiences for students and encourage collaboration.
The project includes:
five new modern science laboratories
modern technology and applied studies (TAS) facilities including new innovative food & textiles and wood & metal learning spaces
new and refurbished visual arts learning spaces
new combined food technology and textile learning spaces
a new central learning commons courtyard space.
The Glenfield-based school will continue to operate as Hurlstone Agricultural High School until the completion of the relocation to the Western Sydney University - Hawkesbury campus. The name of the upgraded Glenfield High School will change to Roy Watts High School in 2023.
Learning spaces and facilities opened for students for Day 1 Term 2, 2019.
Some minor finishing works, including equipment rooms for Block I and the science building, and landscaping works, will continue until June 2019 with minimal disruption to school operations.
How can I get involved?
We are committed to working together with our school communities and other stakeholders to deliver the best possible learning facilities for students.
