Sydney Catholic Schools Future Schooling - Inner West North

Sydney Catholic Schools delivers excellent parish based education throughout the Inner West North region, and has done for a long time. Our parish based primary and secondary schools deliver highly respected, high achieving, faith centred, and community based education. We are committed to continuing and improving this proud tradition.

We presently have nine primary schools and three secondary schools across the parishes of Eastwood, Denistone, Marsfield, North Ryde, Meadowbank, Ryde-Gladesville, Hunters Hill (including Woolwich) and Drummoyne. Our population will grow and our demographics will change over the coming twenty years, and our understanding of the education experience is evolving. Our challenge is to deliver a model of education and networks of schools that best meets the needs of our community, now and into the future.

To help inform our future thinking, Sydney Catholic Schools will undertake a community consultation process to explore our community’s interests, aspirations and experiences. We want to know why you choose our schools and what sort of education experience you want your children to have throughout their entire school life from early learning to Year 12 and beyond. This consultation includes a survey, workshops, focus groups and interviews.

Following the engagement process the subsequent report and recommendations will be provided to the Sydney Catholic Schools Board to provide stakeholder input to future planning. In addition to this consultation, Sydney Catholic Schools will also consider a range of specialist inputs and advice to gain a full understanding of future options.
