Sydney schools are world class
International students learn with Australian students in safe, friendly, multicultural classrooms.
Our schools in Sydney and New South Wales have an international reputation for high quality curriculum and innovative teaching.
In our government schools, international students learn with Australian students in safe, friendly, multicultural classrooms. They are encouraged to participate and develop their skills and confidence.
Our teachers are highly qualified, university-trained professionals and subject specialists.
Computer technology, internet, digital and multimedia materials are part of everyday activities so students develop as creative and independent learners and acquire skills for higher education.
English, mathematics, science, history, geography, visual and performing arts, technology, languages and physical education are among the subjects offered. English-as-a-second language programs, taught by specialist teachers, support international students.
Pastoral care teams are an important feature in each school with dedicated curriculum coordinators, counsellors and careers advisers who look after the wellbeing of each student.
NSW Government schools account for about 66 per cent of total student enrolments in the State. Catholic schools enrol about 18 per cent of students. The independent sector accounts for slightly more than 15 per cent of student enrolments.
The independent sector is made up of different groups or small systems of schools as well as many individually operated schools.
Independent schools are spread across NSW and vary widely in size from small rural schools with fewer than 20 students to large regional and metropolitan schools with more than 1500 students.
Many independent schools in NSW operate boarding facilities.
All government and independent schools in NSW are registered by the NSW Board of Studies and are educationally and financially accountable to the Board and to the Australian and NSW governments.
