Empowering young women since 1885

Welcome to Abbotsleigh, a Pre Kindergarten to Year 12 Anglican day and boarding school for girls located in Wahroonga, on Sydney’s North Shore.

Why Abbotsleigh?

Since 1885, Abbotsleigh has been inspiring girls to lead a purposeful life, to thrive, and to make a positive impact on the world of today and tomorrow. We champion equality for women and girls.

By giving every girl the opportunity to do more, she has the ability to be more.

Educational excellence and innovation

Abbotsleigh is a leader in girls’ education.

Underpinned by our Christian foundations and a commitment to excellence, deep learning, positive relationships, wellbeing, respect and service, we empower our girls to become women of integrity who are courageous global citizens and socially responsible leaders.

Resilient, independent, confident and compassionate, our girls love learning and believe that with education, they are capable of anything.

Welcome from the Headmistress

"We aim for our girls to love learning and life and to truly thrive in our vibrant and exciting learning community where our dedicated teachers inspire and empower our girls to strive for their personal best.

At Abbotsleigh we give our girls the opportunity to do more so that they have the ability to be more.”

- Mrs Megan Krimmer

Our School

Our Christian purpose

At Abbotsleigh we explore and experience the beauty and wonder of the Christian faith.

Our girls investigate and respond to the Christian message with curiosity and open minds. We encourage our girls to learn about and respect diverse beliefs and cultures.

Our engaged community

Our school is not only a place to learn, it is an engaged, vibrant community. Strong relationships between teachers, parents and students are the foundation of a successful education.
