Find your own great.

St Catherine’s is for the girl who can, who wants to and will, given the opportunity and an opening. The girl who’s unique, who has spirit and passion.

We foster this individuality to help her discover her potential, develop her academic and personal abilities and feel great about her achievements whatever they might be.

At St Catherine’s, we help every girl find her own great.

our school

Our balanced approach and supportive environment nurture a strong sense of personal ambition and the resolve to do well, to become open in mind and develop a generosity of spirit.

From Kindergarten to Year 12, every girl is given the opportunity and the support to pursue and achieve their individual success.

We are an Anglican school educating young women for life.

Guided by strong values





We are a Christian school in the Anglican tradition, and stand proud as Australia’s oldest Anglican girls’ school.

Our purpose and values are founded on the wisdom of Jesus Christ and we use the Bible’s guiding principles to help students grow in wisdom, character and knowledge regardless of their faith or background.

We value integrity, courage, relationships and service, drawing on Biblical wisdom to guide our actions as individuals and interactions as a community.

Becoming bold in spirit and open in mind.

An immersive life

Life at St Catherine’s is about turning uncertainty into confidence, challenge into achievement, exploration into fulfilment, inertia into growth, instability into balance.

It’s about learning, designing, creating and innovating, building tenacity and a resilient mindset.

And we value what is important: integrity, courage, relationships and service, developing a good character and an open mind, living and growing as part of a community.

Outstanding education at every step

St Catherine’s is a vibrant learning and living environment, one in which junior and senior students are inspired to tackle a rigorous academic program and develop their skills.

Whatever age they start with us, and the individual educational journey they experience, students leave us as young women of character and intellect, ready to make their unique contribution to the world.

Junior school is a time of wonder and exploration, of discovering new things and developing friendships.

We build strong foundations to ensure students have every opportunity to thrive academically and personally.

Senior school builds further academic and personal strength, and we provide strong support and tailored guidance for every student in their pursuit of individual excellence on their journey to final exams.

Boarding at St Catherine’s is a unique and exciting way to experience life at school.

Our modern, comfortable boarding house caters for 67 boarders, and its caring staff foster a strong sense of connection and contentment, allowing girls to develop independence, resourcefulness and self-confidence.
