About our school

As a non-selective Catholic Independent School, Brigidine College proudly caters for students of all abilities and talents. Framed by our motto, Fortiter et Suaviter, Strength and Gentleness, a Brigidine education combines the spiritual, academic, physical and cultural dimensions of learning. We encourage all girls to challenge themselves and realise their potential.

At Brigidine we are proud of our all-inclusive, non-selective environment with provision for both extension and students who require support with their learning. In a diverse environment of ability, we believe there’s no such thing as a ‘typical Brigidine girl’. All our girls are unique yet the offerings at the College are vast.

Through the breadth of opportunities that Brigidine offers we can foster the unique talents and skills of all our girls and provide an environment for girls to further enhance their skills and discover talents they never knew existed. In an ever-changing environment we know the importance of providing girls with a platform to question and problem solve while building resilience to thrive in the modern world.
