Why An Independent Girls School

The Independent Girls’ schools Association “IGSA” represents the Heads of over 30 Independent girls’ schools in NSW, all with a unified objective to advance the cause of the education of girls.

We are a Member of The Alliance of Girls Schools Australasia “AGSA” and an International Member of Girls Schools Association UK “GSA”
