James Cook Boys Technology High School

Empowering Young Men Through Innovation

Telephone02 9587 1770


James Cook Boys Technology High School is committed to educating young men to be ethically guided critical thinkers who are innovative life long learners. Each student is challenged to achieve his personal best through learning experiences within an inclusive and caring environment.

The school motto, Ignotum Quaerite means ' seek the unknown' or in simpler terms, always take the opportunity to discover and learn about new things.

Welcome back to all our students, and a special welcome to our Year 7 students who have joined our community. I hope that everyone had a restful and safe holiday break. 

Although we have only been back for over a week it seems everyone is working frantically to get all the planning done for a very busy first term.
