About our school

Established in 1894, Santa Sabina College, a Catholic school in the Dominican tradition, educates students to achieve personal excellence, act with justice and compassion, and embrace the future with an optimistic global vision. Located on eight hectares in Sydney’s multicultural inner west, students learn in heritage and modern buildings, spacious playing fields and beautiful gardens. The College delivers a comprehensive curriculum that caters for diverse strengths and goals. As an early childhood (from 6 weeks old) to Year 12 campus, students benefit from the continuity of learning approaches from the early years to Year 12. Inquiry learning in a student-centred learning environment characterises each stage of school life. Teaching in the Primary Years is via the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IBPYP). Girls are front and centre in Gioia House, our unique program for Years 5 and 6, cocooned in their own area and program. Years 11 and 12 students choose either the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (IBDP) or NSW HSC. Santa Sabina is the only Catholic primary school in NSW to offer the IBPYP and the only Catholic School in Sydney’s inner west offering the IBDP. 

The pastoral care of students is integral to our teaching and learning. Outdoor education programs are delivered on our 97-hectare Southern Highlands campus, Tallong. We also offer over 20 sports; several critically acclaimed music and drama ensembles and performance opportunities locally, interstate and globally; public speaking and debating; and the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award. Our motto, Veritas, challenges students to think for themselves, to engage in respectful debates with those who think differently and to reflect on all that they encounter.
