From our Principal, Dr Emma Burgess

Welcome to Danebank

Thank you for your interest in our special learning community.

It is a great pleasure to welcome you to our website as you consider options and endeavour to find the best school for your daughter.

I know that, in exploring a Danebank education, you are making one of the most significant decisions for your family. It is a transformative period of your daughter’s life, where she arrives as a girl and leaves the school gates as a young woman.

A leading girls’ school

Danebank is one of the leading girls’ schools in Australia with a wonderful reputation and proud history of excellence and innovation in thinking, learning and care. Our girls are encouraged and empowered to flourish in every aspect of their lives through the provision of a high-quality, affordable and well-rounded contemporary Christian education.

For several years now, Danebank has been the top-performing non-selective school in Sydney’s Georges River and Sutherland Shire. Our school’s wide range of learning offerings, including sport, co-curricular, social, community service, extension and support activities provide the rich soil in which our girls flourish as they grow into young women.

Our heart for our people

Our girls are at the heart of everything we do.

They develop life-long friendships and we view our relationships as key to our success. We actively partner with families and are deeply committed to ensuring that our girls learn within a happy, safe and nurturing environment.

Our teachers are outstanding educators who are experts in their field and are deeply committed to educating girls. Danebank teachers are passionate about ensuring that each girl experiences the best in learning. They get to know their students and how they learn, and tailor their learning programs accordingly.

Our Christian Heritage and Faith

The life of Danebank is anchored in a Christian foundation and our worship and spiritual life is grounded in the Anglican tradition. The very essence of our motto - Ut ProsimThat I May Serve - reflects our intention for each girl to develop meaning in her life, to grow in faith, to serve others and contribute to society into the future.

We do things differently

On the outside, we look like just another girls’ school in Sydney with high academic outcomes and a reputation for excellence in learning and care. But take one step on to our campus and you’ll discover that we are more than this. You’ll feel it in the atmosphere. You’ll notice our heart, and you’ll warm to our people and way of being. We do things differently here.

I encourage you to explore the many advantages of a Danebank education found within this website and look forward to meeting you and your daughter in the future.
