Message from the Principal

How do you prepare a young girl for her future?

At St Catherine’s School, we believe it begins with courage. From the moment a student walks through our Heyington Gates, she is encouraged to be bold, to inquire, to question and to contribute.

We aspire to graduating students possessing the confidence and capabilities to thrive in the ever-changing world of work, and to contribute to society in meaningful ways.

As Principal, I am often asked to describe the essence of St Catherine’s School. Most noteworthy are the authentic learning experiences and quality of teaching provided by our professional and dedicated staff. Their expertise and warmth ensures the provision of a stimulating, tailored and future-focused education, for which St Catherine’s is internationally renowned defining the School as a leader in girls’ wellbeing and academic achievement.

There is no better way to discover the St Catherine’s experience than when you step through our historical Heyington Gates. It is then that you will see the authentic learning experiences and quality of teaching provided by our professional and dedicated staff, you will see our students actively engaged in learning experiences and gain a true understanding of the unique St Catherine’s community.

    St Catherine’s is a very special school. It has a big heart and I love everything it stands for. Because of its size and strong sense of community, nobody is overlooked or left behind. The teachers are generous with their time and always approachable. St Catherine’s is warm and relaxed, despite its strong focus on academic excellence. It can be formal but only when appropriate and necessary. It is very inclusive. One of the fundamental aspects of our School is people really care about each other.

    The opportunities are endless. Sport has been an enormous part of my journey at School and has inspired me to work hard, strive for excellence and believe in myself. We are always encouraged to try something new and to be unafraid of failure. The very strong message we are given is that it is the process, rather than the result, that is important. Ironically, the girls always seem to achieve extraordinary things! That is the truly wonderful part of St Catherine’s spirit.
