Welcome to Abbotsleigh, a Pre Kindergarten to Year 12 Anglican day school for girls located in Wahroonga, on Sydney’s North Shore. Our aim is to deliver a deeper learning that empowers the ‘whole girl’ so she can unleash her potential within and way beyond the classroom.
Welcome to the community of Abbotsleigh, a place of learning and enquiry, where your daughter will be nurtured, challenged and provided with every opportunity to access her full potential. Academic rigour is valued at Abbotsleigh, but our curriculum is broad and encourages all areas of creativity and innovation. From our earliest learners to our senior girls, we want our students to be the best that they can be.
Abbotsleigh has a sustained history of strong results in the HSC and the NAPLAN tests. We are a top ranked independent school in NSW but our aim is broader than this. We want to foster in our girls a life long interest in learning and minds that are open to exploration and enquiry.
Abbotsleigh girls enjoy busy terms and generous holiday periods
On 20 July 1885 Miss Marian Clarke opened Abbotsleigh in a small terrace house in Mount Street, North Sydney. The School relocated in Wahroonga in 1898, with 13 boarders and 10 day girls. Things have of course expanded since then.
Abbotsleigh’s core purpose is to foster excellence in teaching and learning. We attract staff of the highest calibre, whose enthusiasm and skills support the Christian ethos of the School and its culture.
