St Andrew's Cathedral School(聖安德烈座堂學校)
St Andrew's Cathedral School
St Andrew's Cathedral School is an independent, Anglican, co-educational, day school located in the heart of the city of Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. The school currently caters for approximately 1,100 students from Kindergarten to Year 12.
The school is one of Sydney's oldest, founded in 1885, as a choir school for St Andrew's Cathedral, Sydney. St Andrew's is legally supervised by the Cathedral Chapter which appoints and approves members of the School Council which was formed in 1979. The Council is responsible for administering the School's policies and formulating its mission and vision as well as appointing successive Heads of School. A boys' school for much of its history, St Andrew's opened its doors to senior girls (Years 10 to 12) in 1999. In 2008, the school became a co-educational school with boys and girls enrolled from Kindergarten to Year 12.
The School is a member of the International Choir Schools' Association, the Independent Schools Association (ISA), the Association of Heads of Independent Schools of Australia (AHISA), and the Junior School Heads Association of Australia (JSHAA).
In 2009, St Andrew's became an IB World School and now offers the International Baccalaureate Diploma as an alternative leaving qualification to the NSW Higher School Certificate (HSC).
