About our school

Siena College is a learning community. We are committed to providing a challenging, enriching and supportive education in which all students are encouraged and supported to maximise their potential and develop into confident and articulate young women. The learning program is designed to cater for the interests, needs and collaborative ways in which girls learn, encouraging students to pursue their interests in any given field.

Siena College students are surrounded by strong female role models, in both their peers and alumnae, who encourage them to strive to achieve successful outcomes from their own efforts.

Secure, respectful and confident relationships at school, enhance our students’ learning so they can experience a comprehensive and enriching education. At Siena College we actively involve students in community activities and initiatives and strive through all teaching and learning experiences to help our students learn the importance of their roles within our community and beyond the College gates. We actively seek to engage authentically with students so that their voices are heard.

The Siena College Wellbeing Team, which includes the Deputy Principal Wellbeing, Heads of House, Leader of Wellbeing Programs and the College Counsellors, provides support and education for both students and parents.

Principal's Message

We encourage our students to engage in critical reflection on the world, develop a love of learning, an appreciation of culture and beauty and a spirit of freedom and responsibility.

St Catherine of Siena is the College patron and a role model of a woman who responded to the needs of her time with courage and conviction. She was both passionate and courageous, a revolutionary, a peacemaker, a champion of the poor and a prophetic teacher and Truth seeker. A Siena education has always been based on a deep respect for the unique qualities and gifts of each member of the community with an emphasis on service and on personal excellence in all endeavours.

Since it first opened in 1940, Siena College has demonstrated the capacity to meet evolving educational expectations of Church, students and parents. We look forward to educating and inspiring future generations of young women who will pass through our care.
