Principal's Welcome

Principal's Welcome

Welcome to Claremont College. I have been Principal of Claremont College for 15 years and I love this place and our wonderful school community! It’s a very special school for so many reasons.

As you tour our website, I am sure you will see that Claremont College is a school where students and staff are deeply connected to, and ‘inspired for life’.

In 2022 we celebrate our 140th anniversary, making us one of the oldest independent schools in Sydney, if not Australia.

It is not an easy task to describe the depth and richness of our school. I hope that the following words help you to paint a picture of why I believe that Claremont College is wonderful school and a safe, nurturing and happy place for children to come to every day.

Claremont College is a Christ centred, child focussed school filled with learning and discovery, excitement, fun, creativity, colour, music, sport, drama, challenge, celebration, care and friendship, family, encouragement, a love of God in Jesus and a love of the fullness of life.

Equipping children with the skills and attitudes to be happy and successful in life has been the work of Claremont College since it was founded in 1882. Initially established as a girls’ secondary day and boarding school, we are now a thriving co-educational primary school with approximately 350 students from Kindergarten to Year 6.
