St Andrew's Cathedral School (SACS) is a coeducational, independent Kindergarten to Year 12 Anglican school. It is the quintessential city school located in two high-rise buildings in the centre of Sydney's CBD. Our school seeks to enrich its curriculum by engaging in learning experiences beyond the classroom, utilising city museums, concert halls, theatres, law courts, galleries and other places of work.
We seek to ensure our students are given every opportunity to excel academically, socially and in co-curricular activities. We are proudly known as a highly inclusive pastoral school, which aims at academic excellence, and has outstanding programs in Music, Drama and Outdoor Education.
The academic performance of our Year 12 graduates is consistently impressive, with our Senior College students able to choose the International Baccalaureate Diploma (IB) or the Higher School Certificate (HSC) as their exit credential. Our staff are committed to continuously improve and lift our results and academic culture. We use a wide range of technologies in the classroom to ensure students are given every opportunity to be engaged and learning every day.
Our 2018 cohort of 57 IB Diploma students achieved at a high level across all subjects, with 56 per cent achieving scores over 33, which converts to a university admissions rank of 90 and over (in the top 10 per cent of students in the country).
St Andrew's introduced the IB Middle Years Programme in 2016 to ensure the assessment and learning of our Middle School students was aligned with the world's best practice. The benefits will not only be seen in students in Years 7 to 10 but will also manifest in the enhanced development of our students undertaking the HSC, the International Baccalaureate Diploma and beyond school, as they are equipped with the tools for lifelong learning.
At SACS, every student is nurtured, encouraged and valued. A growing number of international students enrol every year and a diverse community of students are drawn from all over Sydney and beyond.
