Welcome to Wenona, an independent non-denominational day and boarding school for girls from Kindergarten to Year 12, based in North Sydney. We passionately believe in the effectiveness of girls’ education to empower young women to develop their strengths and talents. Research shows that in single-sex environments, girls feel most free to pursue their interests to the best of their abilities, in and outside of the classroom.

Wenona has a strong sense of community, and aims to instil in students a sense of hope, purpose and service. We aim to see young women graduating from Wenona as intelligent, gracious, compassionate and capable adults. We recognise each girl as an individual, with her own passions to discover and contributions to make as she steps out of the School gates.

Wenona also offers a healthy environment, with rich opportunities beyond classroom. Through involvement in sports, debating, creative arts, leadership and service, girls discover their creativity, teamwork, work/life balance, and other life lessons they will take with them after graduating. It is our goal that each girl will go from strength to strength, develop courage and resilience, and have a strong sense of self, so they can go on to shape their worlds into the future.  

Vision and Values

Every part of life at Wenona is built on a deep understanding of how girls think, work and feel. The research shows girls feel ablest to stretch themselves in single-sex education environments. In and outside of the classroom, we provide the guidance and encouragement for our students to become confident, resilient, graceful women.
