Meet Our Principal

As Principal, I welcome you to our school.

In my second year at St Paul’s, I have acquired a strong, fresh sense of the enduring qualities offered by a St Paul’s Grammar School education. 

As a Christian school, we believe that we are all created by God in His image; therefore, every individual is precious, deserving of care and respect. A Christian worldview informs and frames every aspect of our school – from the ways in which we relate to each other, the presentation of our curriculum, our policies and procedures and the way we model our faith in daily practice.  

From a foundation of caring inquiry-based learning in Pre-Kindergarten, extending right through to their senior years, St Paul’s students share in a school culture that is both proud and strong – as much about becoming well-rounded, responsible world citizens as it is about enjoying their journey.

The internationally-recognised International Baccalaureate programmes are taught continuously at Primary, Middle and Senior levels, in conjunction with NESA requirements, placing our students in a global framework, with a local focus. I am proud of our exceptional teaching staff at St Paul’s: their enthusiasm always extends far beyond the four walls of the classroom. Whether finishing with the IB Diploma or HSC programme, St Paul’s students are uniquely placed to work to their strengths and to aim high.

A tradition of academic excellence is only one aspect to education. St Paul’s students are able to immerse themselves in a range of co-curricular activities that extend their learning experience – including our RFS unit, and a vast range of sport, music, dance, drama.

I warmly invite you to visit our beautiful school: take a tour, connect with our community and explore the possibilities with St Paul’s. 

In Christo Futurum.
