St Catherine’s School Waverley

Do you love school? Are you interested and involved in the world around you? Would you like to make your mark in the world?

St Catherine’s School has just turned 162 years old. That’s 162 years of educating and caring for girls like you. Girls who value integrity, are honest and fair-minded and aspire to greatness.

A St Catherine's girl

We have seen many girls like you come through our gates in Waverley, Sydney. You demonstrate compassion, kindness and generosity to those around you. You show integrity, you are resilient (or would like to be) and are curious about how a Christian tradition might help you uphold your own values. You may be really interested in science or music or have a passion for drama or a desire to perform. You may love sport and playing in a team or strive to improve your personal best. Do you help out in your community to make it a better place? Do you get lost in whatever you’re reading? Are you eager to learn another language? Would you like to speak up? Speak out?
If you recognise yourself in just a few of these qualities, you are already a St Catherine’s girl at heart and we would love to welcome you to our school.

Day and Boarding

St Catherine’s School is a dynamic and supportive day and boarding school for girls from Kindergarten to Year 12. We offer a broad, challenging and vibrant education designed to unlock the unique potential of every girl. We are Australia’s oldest independent Anglican girls’ school and one of the most forward thinking. As a non-selective school our girls achieve at high academic levels.

Our goal

Our goal is to develop young women of character and intellect who are equipped to make their unique contribution to the world. A combination of research-based practice, excellent facilities and integration of the principles of positive psychology enable our dedicated teachers to support your learning path. While respecting the different strengths of all our girls, we foster the development of each of you as an individual. This makes St Catherine’s a diverse and enriching place to learn and grow. Our girls build a network of valuable relationships which will support you through your studies both emotionally and intellectually, and into the future.

Our core virtues

While at St Catherine’s your study is complemented by strong cocurricular programs in sport, music, performing arts and service education. We have a Christian tradition but welcome and value all faiths and abilities. The core virtues of the St Catherine’s girl are integrity, resilience, respect, relationships and service.
All our girls are encouraged to embrace challenge, value each other and to LOVE SCHOOL.

Come and join us.
