Founded in 1895, SCEGGS is a non-selective Anglican school for girls
from Kindergarten to Year 12. Located in the centre of Sydney, it attracts students from all over
the metropolitan area and beyond. The school is noted for academic excellence
and for its care of the individual.

Facilities: Among the specialist teaching areas are an electronic
language centre, excellent facilities in each classroom, the SCEGGS great hall
and playhouse, which provide outstanding concert and drama facilities, a
performing arts centre for music and an international-standard sports hall that
provides full-size indoor facilities for a host of sports including basketball,
netball, volleyball, tennis, and all forms of gymnastics.

Electives: Committed to providing girls with the very best in
education, SCEGGS offers a comprehensive curriculum, extensive subject choice
and special opportunities for enrichment within and outside the classroom.
Technology is also seen as a vital tool in the learning process and is
integrated in each learning space, providing students with the skills needed for
an ever-increasing electronic environment. When combined with a focus on
critical thinking and problem-solving in each discipline, girls are assured of
gaining the skills necessary for life-long learning.

Co-curricular activities: These include debating, a large range of
small and large music ensembles and choirs, drama, photography, more than 16
different sports, the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme, and a range of special
interest groups.

Welfare and personal development: An extensive pastoral care program
is supported by a co-ordinator of student welfare, two full-time student
counsellors, a school chaplain, Year co-ordinators and form teachers. At the
same time, the school involves students in their own development, teaching them
the value of personal responsibility. As a result, girls are guided but not
directed, confident but not uncaring, independent but not alone.

Special features: As a city school, SCEGGS draws students from a
variety of geographical areas and social backgrounds, resulting in the individuality,
independence of mind and egalitarianism for which its girls are often noted.
