St Catherine’s School has been educating girls for over 160 years. In fact, it is Australia’s oldest independent Anglican girls’ school. Affectionately known as St Cath’s in eastern suburbs, you often see the girls in their striking red duffle coats and their smart straw hats streaming through the school gates in Waverley.

Girls can attend from Kindergarten to Year 12 across the one campus with a distinct Junior School and Senior School. However Year 7 is a major intake year if you are looking for a high school for your daughter.

The Senior School is a dynamic and supportive day and boarding school with a broad, challenging and vibrant curriculum designed to unlock the unique potential of every student. St Catherine’s girls are encouraged to “Love school, embrace life and enrich the world”. All ethnicities, abilities and faith backgrounds are welcomed at the school which has a Christian worldview.

It’s interesting to note the school’s values of integrity, resilience, respect, relationships and service. These values are embedded in the unique pastoral care program which is based on positive psychology. Each girl is encouraged to find her character strengths and to build on them, developing a resilient mindset, a positive outlook and academic tenacity.

What sets St Catherine’s apart is the way they will 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. The school offers many avenues for enrichment, extension and opportunities for acceleration but will also give strong academic support to those who need it. Both the co-curricular and music programs are second to none with something for every passion, talent or skill level.

The school does well in the sports arena too. Over 20 sports are on offer with access to school-based, local, regional and national competition for all abilities. Whether it’s water polo, rowing, gymnastics or netball, the girls are very active at this school.

St Catherine’s offers a range of scholarships so it’s worth having a look at their website for further information. If you are looking for a high school where your daughter will be well educated, well rounded and well balanced – St Catherine’s does a good job of preparing girls for a bright future.
