Visit us

There is no better way to find out more than to see for yourself, so come and visit us – we’d love to show you around.

We run regular tours of Abbotsleigh throughout each school term. Abbotsleigh does not have open days as we prefer to let you experience the School on a normal working day.

Abbotsleigh has two large campuses in Wahroonga:

  • The Early Learning Centre and Junior School are located in Woonona Avenue
  • The Senior School is located on the Pacific Highway, on the corner of Ada Avenue

Tours of each campus are conducted from 10-11.30 am and include morning tea and an opportunity to hear from the Headmistress or the Head of the Junior School.

Boarding families can then take a full guided tour of the boarding precinct.

If you are unable to attend any of our scheduled tours, please contact the Registrar to organise your visit. We look forward to meeting you.

The best way to learn more about Abbotsleigh is to come and see for yourself

RegistrarCF thumbI understand that choosing a school for your child is one of the more significant decisions we make as parents.

I enjoy the conversation I have with potential new families in search of a school for their daughter, as I love telling the Abbotsleigh story. My aim is to make the enrolment process as transparent as possible, from the first contact to having your daughter commence her first day with us.

It would be a pleasure to share with you just why Abbotsleigh will offer your daughter a unique learning experience. There is no better way to find out more than to come and see for yourself – I look forward to meeting you.

Mrs Colleen Fenn
