St Catherine's School

NSW, Sydney City Central & Eastern Suburbs









St Catherine’s School is a dynamic and supportive school for girls from Kindergarten to Year 12 and for boarders from Year 7. We offer a broad, challenging and vibrant education designed to unlock the unique potential of every girl. 

With Academic Challenge and Academic Care — the twin pillars of our approach to education — St Catherine’s girls are encouraged to ‘love school, embrace life, enrich the world’.

Our school values integrity, resilience, respect, relationships and service, and employs these qualities to strengthen communities and build character and a strong sense of wellbeing in each student.

We welcome girls of all backgrounds and respect the different strengths of each student, acknowledging that diversity enriches our community.

Our teachers embrace the latest educational research balancing clear instruction with engagement. They help each girl to learn in the way that is right for her, giving her the academic rigour she needs and the tools she can use to flourish at school. We offer a broad, differentiated curriculum with a focus on meeting individual student needs, plus other forms of enrichment, extension and the opportunity for acceleration. 

While at St Catherine’s, your daughter’s study is complemented by strong cocurricular programs in sport, music, performing arts and service education. When she leaves St Catherine’s, we want her to be well educated, well rounded and well balanced – ready for further study, ready for life.
