Message from the Principal

One of Australia's leading coeducational independent schools, St Leonard's College is a friendly, vibrant, inclusive community. Committed to a holistic approach to education - 'head, heart and soul' - we believe that the education of young people is a privilege, not just a responsibility.

At St Leonard's College, the academic curriculum is central. Our highly skilled teachers are guided by the best curriculum initiatives. Having a strong international focus, we offer both the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme and the International Baccalaureate Diploma.

We value openness, tolerance and the diversity which strengthens our ability to recognise the multiple intelligences of our students.

Most importantly, we recognise that a great school isn't just about grades. It's about creativity; broad co-curricular opportunities; fun and friendship between young men and women who support and encourage each other to embrace new opportunities and develop the skills needed to contribute to a changing world.

St Leonard's College is committed to employing, developing and retaining the very best teachers.

- Stuart Davis (Principal).
