SCEGGS is a non-selective Anglican school for girls from Kindergarten to Year 12 with a school population of about 920 girls. Located near the center of Sydney, it attracts students from all over the metropolitan area and can utilize the city's educational resources. SCEGGS aims to educate its students to become confident, competent, and articulate young women in an environment that values diversity and individuality. Its excellent academic record makes it one of Sydney's leading Independent Girls' Schools.
SCEGGS has an enviable reputation for its academic success and broad curriculum and for being a nurturing, caring, and friendly environment. SCEGGS girls enjoy coming to school. We believe this achievement is directly attributed to our outstanding staff members, who are passionately dedicated to developing the most effective ways to help girls learn. They respect each student's individuality and achievement in all areas of their school life - academic, cultural, and sporting. Our aim at SCEGGS is to help each girl grow into a confident, capable woman who can make a valuable contribution to our society.
SCEGGS commits itself to be an outstanding educator of girls. A SCEGGS girl will be distinctive in her love of learning. This will be lifelong, allowing her to embrace change in the complex world of the future. Her individuality will flourish, and she will be confident and at ease in the city environment. Her compassion and understanding of people will be based on a commitment to others' service and in response to the School's Christian foundation. A SCEGGS girl will be accomplished, competent, and articulate, one whose confidence and sense of self-worth allow her to make a significant contribution to the community.
Our Path Ahead is the school's new Strategic Plan that outlines where we are headed and who we are as a school, and those values to which we remain committed. It made sense to us to outline who we are now and the essential aspects that will not change and outline where we are heading. We stress, however, that it is not a 5-year business plan. It is a long term document of strategic intent. "Once a SCEGGS girl, always a SCEGGS girl" means that we want to have a life-time relationship with our girls! Many of the things we have outlined are not on the immediate horizon – but much further in the future. From the cradle to the grave, as the cliché goes. We hope you find it interesting, challenging, and inspiring. An electronic version can be found below. Extended hard copies of the document are available at the school.
