St Leonard's College

About Us

St Leonard's College offers all students 'A chance to be...'

A chance to be the best they can be, and importantly, a chance to be themselves.

While our focus is on the fundamentals, the personal development of students is equally important and our modern facilities cater to a wide range of interests.

Our coeducational environment is the result of a deep understanding of the subtle balance between genders, individuals and groups. Students learn and interact in a way that truly reflects the wider community.

St Leonard's College students finish school confident and socially able to take on the challenges of university, life and work.

We invite you to make an appointment for a guided tour of our first class facilities.
