Bradfield Senior College was one of the first senior high schools established by the NSW Department of Education and last year celebrated 20 years of working with parents and students in the pursuit of individual academic and vocational goals. The college is a co-educational senior high school catering for motivated Year 11 and 12 students seeking university or vocational pathways. The college has re-located to St Leonards in 2014 to be part of the new Learning and Innovation Campus, an initiative of the Northern Sydney Institute of TAFE, servicing the Global IT Corridor and located within the medical hub of the lower North Shore.

Bradfield Senior College students have the opportunity to combine their school programs with certificate courses through accessing the pathways provided by TAFE. Bradfield Senior College offers excellent student outcomes, individual attention and a caring and supportive environment. The college is proud of its diverse student population, strong values of tolerance, workplace discipline code, a wide range of subject choices, experienced and innovative teachers and excellent facilities. A supportive relationship between staff and students is a vital component of Bradfield Senior College life. In this learning environment the individual is encouraged to be independent, creative and positive. At Bradfield Senior College both education and the development of work skills are important and learning is seen as a lifelong goal. Staff work to create a unique pathway for each student so they can better achieve their vocational goals. All students participate in structured workplace learning.

All our students undertake a vocational course in areas including Visual Arts & Design (Design Fundamentals, Furniture Making, Visual Arts & Contemporary Crafts, Fashion & Textiles), Performing Arts (Entertainment, Theatre Film & Radio, Musical Comedy, Music Industry), Hospitality — Commercial Cookery, Information Digital Technology, Media Journalism, Outdoor Recreation, Retail, Hospitality, Sport & Recreation and Tourism & Events.All courses are accredited as part of the HSC
