What sort of school produces the first woman to climb Aoraki/Mount Cook in 1910? The only woman in the world to have won the prestigious Rutherford Medal for Physics? General Manager of NIDA? A National Living Treasure? SCEGGS Darlinghurst numbers all these achievers amongst its alumni.
What is it about SCEGGS that educates women of this calibre?
SCEGGS is a unique school – situated in the heart of Australia’s busiest city, it possesses only a small population of 900 students from Kindergarten to Year 12. It is not an academically selective school but it achieves outstanding academic results.
Parents enrol their girls at SCEGGS because it offers a special environment – a place where the personal and academic potential of each child is developed equally. Our students learn, not only the curriculum, but to feel comfortable within themselves, sure of their strengths and able to work as independent, confident and articulate members of the community. The school emphasises the worth of the individual, personal integrity and social responsibility.
