T.A. Blakelock High School is the second oldest high school in the town of Oakville, Ontario, and has the oldest high school building in Oakville still in use as a school. The school was built in 1957. There are 1,100 students at T.A. Blakelock. The school is named after Thomas Aston Blakelock.
The school's athletic teams were originally known as the Tabbies, after the acronym TAB. They are now called the Tigers. Blakelock is the only public high school in southwest Oakville, after the recent closing of Queen Elizabeth High School and the transfer of Gordon E. Perdue High School to the Catholic Board in 1990.
The current principal is Mr. Dean Barnes. Previously, Mr. Kevin Caughlin served as principal.
In June 2006, the Senior Boys Soccer team won bronze at OFSAA in Thunder Bay. They also won the Halton Championship, going undefeated in this time. They became one of the most successful teams that the school has produced, rivaling the dynasty in sport that Blakelock had in the 1970s when many of its athletes went on to college, university and professional careers.
