    All Saints' College Bathurst is a co-educational Christian college in the Anglican tradition. Day students are catered for from Pre-Kindergarten to Year 12 and boarders from Years 7 to 12. With a total enrolment of approximately 530 students, this beautifully situated College is one of the most successful schools in the state, both academically and in co-curricular activities. Located at Bathurst, NSW, All Saints' College has the benefit of country living but is still readily accessible to Sydney and major centers. All Saints' College seeks to nurture, encourage, challenge, and educate girls and boys in a vibrant, caring, pastoral environment.

    In 1873 Canon Thomas Smith of All Saints' Cathedral, Bathurst enthused Bishop Marsden with the idea of opening an Anglican College in the city. On January 27th, the Bathurst Church of England College opened its doors to seven students under the headmastership of Henry Kemmis. Renamed All Saints' College, the College officially came into being in mid-1875 when it moved to its permanent site on Piper and Hope Streets' corner after a successful fundraising campaign and the Bishop's donation of land.

    In 1878 Mr. Edwin Bean, the Senior Classics Master of Sydney Grammar, succeeded Henry Kemmis. During the eleven years of his headmastership, the College developed into a very significant and typically independent College. The scholarly Bean produced the badge and motto, designed the uniform, commenced the Bathurstian, introduced the prefect system, cadets, debating, dancing, and carpentry, and opened a Prep College library.

    The All Saints' College curriculum is designed to cater to a great diversity of interests and needs. As students progress through Years 7 to 12, a greater degree of choice is introduced. This enables students to develop patterns of study that are highly appropriate to their career ambitions and future needs. The curriculum is divided into three stages:

    • Years 7-8
    • Years 9-10 and
    • Years 11-12.

    In Year 7, all subjects are compulsory. This exposure to a broad and comprehensive curriculum is designed to help students make more informed and accurate subject selections. In Year 8, students choose between Japanese and French. An increased range of choices is available in Year 9 and subsequently in Year 11. In Years 9 and 10, student courses are structured around a core of English, Mathematics, Science, History, Personal Development, Health & Physical Education (PD/H/PE), and Christian Studies. Also, students are required to select two elective subjects from the range offered in the Key Learning Areas (KLA):

    • Human Society & It is Environment

    • Technology & Applied Studies

    In Years 11 & 12, English is the only compulsory subject. Additional subjects are chosen from the remaining seven KLAs. The pattern of these additional subjects must follow the Board of Studies regulations, as indicated in the Key Learning Areas section of this web site. All subjects taught at All Saints' College Bathurst are under constant review. In the case of elective subjects, their inclusion depends on demand, although every effort is made to provide students with their chosen electives range.
