St Andrew's Cathedral School, an independent Anglican school founded in 1885, has a long history of pursuing excellence in the context of a warm and inclusive community. Our teachers are experts in their chosen fields, deeply committed to the relational nature of teaching and engaged in the character development of every child. Our location, in the heart of Sydney's CBD, enriches our curriculum, allowing students exciting opportunities to engage with significant entrepreneurial and cultural institutions.

Our Academic Programme

We are an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School. Our Middle School students enjoy the real-world richness of being taught the NSW curriculum through the IB Middle Years framework, building critical skills for their later years. Our Senior College students can choose to study either the HSC or the IB Diploma. For schools that offer both IB and HSC the way to measure against other schools is in terms of Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR). In 2022, our percentage of students with 99+ ATAR was in the top 12 schools, and the percentage with 95+ ATAR was in the top 15 schools. The overwhelming majority of our students pursue university education after graduation, with increasing numbers pursuing overseas study options.


By secondary school, students can join one of many expeditions offered - hiking from Mount Kosciuszko to the coast, canoeing along the Murray River, mountain biking in New Zealand and back-country skiing and snow camping. Every year, a variety of international tours are offered through various faculties.
