Queenwood was founded in 1925 as a unique place of education for girls, dedicated to giving every student the opportunity to reach her full potential. This guiding principle remains as relevant to Queenwood today as it was then.

From its location on Sydney’s lower north shore, Queenwood offers a special educational experience, combining a rich heritage with a rounded curriculum and a commitment to teaching excellence and innovation.

Queenwood is best defined by its distinctive ethos. This is characterised by collaborative learning and personal development, a focus on care and compassion for others, and encouragement for girls to be the best they can be.

A challenging curriculum, including the International Baccalaureate as an option in senior years, is complemented by a full sporting, pastoral and co-curricular program in shaping girls into confident, self-aware young women.

As you explore our website, consider each feature of Queenwood presented as one part of a holistic approach designed to give your daughter the best possible school education.

Queenwood’s motto Per Aspera Ad Astra – ‘Through Struggles to the Stars’ – is no more evident than in the qualities of resilience, compassion and confidence that are the hallmark of Queenwood girls.
