Our History

Robert Townson High School was established in 1987 to serve the communities of Raby, St Andrews, Bow Bowing and Varroville in the City of Campbelltown. 

The school was named after Robert Townson a scholar, scientist and settler.  He was probably baptised on 4 April 1762 at Richmond, Surrey, England.  Robert was the son of John Townson, merchant.

Robert's zest for natural history dictated his activities for many years.  He travelled widely as a gentleman scholar, collaborating with the professors at the universities he visited.  In 1791 he was elected a fellow of the Royal Society of Edinborough.
