Kambala is an Anglican, independent day and boarding school for girls located on the rising shore above Rose Bay with a breathtaking view of Sydney Harbour. Founded in 1887, Kambala caters for students from Preparatory (four years old) to Year 12, with boarders generally entering the school from Year 7.

Kambala offers a broad and holistic education, an excellent teacher-to-student ratio and the opportunity for students to truly excel. Kambala’s rich and varied programs, administered in a positive and supportive environment, inspire every student to realise her own purpose with integrity, passion and generosity. Academically curious and intellectually brave, Kambala aspires to raise leaders of the future.

Though non-selective, Kambala’s history of outstanding academic excellence is highly regarded. The Year 12 results consistently place Kambala in the top group of schools in New South Wales, a testament to the school’s educational practices and dynamic learning community.

Located in Sydney’s eastern suburbs, students enjoy the open space of the oval and lawn areas as well as the beautiful landscaped grounds surrounding the iconic, heritage-listed Tivoli building. Flexible learning spaces are complemented by specialist areas for Visual Arts, Music, Science, Design and Technology, Food Technology and Multimedia, while boarding facilities provide opportunity for individual nurturing. Tivoli, the school’s boarding house for Years 7 to 9, is a communal environment where all rooms are shared. Tivoli caters for younger students with a well-resourced study section and spacious recreational living. Fernbank, the boarding house for Years 10 to 12, allows great privacy and independence where boarders develop the skills necessary for life after school.
