Authorised as an International Baccalaureate World School since 2010, Kambala is the first independent girls' school in Sydney's Eastern Suburbs to offer the IB. The school's strategic priorities are learning, leading, belonging and stewardship, and the four school values of Humanity, Courage, Curiosity and Respect are at the core of everything we do. With academic curiosity and a compassionate constitution, she is both self-aware and prepared to make a difference in the world. Kambala believes in raising women equipped to embrace and achieve their personal successes. This vision complements the aim of the IB Diploma Programme: to develop students who flourish physically, intellectually, emotionally and ethically.

Kambala's reputation as a leader of girls' education, enhanced by the exceptional results of its IB students, is a testament to the expertise of the staff and to the students' academic engagement and commitment. Kambala's academic success is complemented by its broad cultural extra-curricular program and focus on charity that facilitates IB students' participation in the 'creativity, activity and service' components of the IB Diploma Programme. Kambala's large lawns and courtyard areas, grassy oval and tennis courts, are situated against the panoramic backdrop of iconic Sydney Harbour. Other facilities include flexible learning spaces, an indoor swimming pool and specialist learning areas for Music, Visual Arts, Science and various technological subjects.

Kambala's onsite boarding house Fernbank is a purpose-built facility that provides a nurturing and supportive communal family environment for 50 girls. To assist boarders to structure their time a positive way and to develop and maintain productive study habits, Kambala provides the necessary support to encourage positive study habits. Outside of school hours there is an abundance of activities both within the community and beyond. Outside of school hours there is an abundance of activities both within the community and beyond.
