A group of teenagers have been charged over a $50,000 school ransacking in Sydney's west.

The six boys allegedly broke into Westfields Sports High School at Fairfield West on Wednesday night.

They're accused of damaging classrooms, spray-painting walls and smashing property, causing up to $50,000 in damage.

Police arrived at the school to find eight people running amok, with Polair having to be called in to locate two of the teens who fled to a nearby park.
