Wilderness School is a highly regarded, prestigious day and boarding school for girls. We are proudly an academic school and justifiably ambitious for our girls.

Our girls’ commitment to learning across a range of academic subjects is consistently evident in their outstanding achievements year after year. These outcomes are a testimony to the wonderful opportunities offered to our girls and to the dedication and professionalism of their teachers.
Wilderness School was founded in the belief for unlimited kindness in relationships, joy in learning, a spirit of humility and the balance between seeking individual excellence and generous service to the community. These values guide every part of Wilderness School’s culture, relationships, teaching and learning programs.

We aim to prepare girls for successful participation in a society in which knowledge is a key resource and in an economy which is becoming increasingly globalised.

Developing confidence, independence and resilience, where our young women are able to respect others and work collaboratively are key capabilities for the 21st Century.

Each day as we walk alongside our girls, as they learn about their world and their place in it, it is important that we engage them in courageous conversations, that we challenge them to be bold, to be 10% braver.
Intercultural sensitivity and competence and responsible citizenship will be important factors in their futures also.

At Wilderness we welcome and value the contribution our international students bring to the School community and respect their courage as learners in their second language.

At Wilderness, we are dedicated to providing each individual
girl with a firm foundation and inspiration for a challenging, demanding and fulfilling life.
