Schools in Sydney AustraliaSydney schools are very good, considered to be very rigorous and are also difficult to get into, particularly for the expat arriving for a shortish stay.  Most seem to prefer students who are there for the long haul, so this is one city where early planning and investigation are crucial.

This list gives you a snapshot overview of schools in and outside of Sydney that are considered by English-speaking expats... and that are sometimes chosen by parents and sometimes not.  

If we haven't reviewed a school, it may just mean we haven't found enough parents yet to give us the reports that start our evaluation process.

Schools selected for full GSGI review are noted with GSGI School banner  next to their names.

Sydney Schools Considered By Expats

There is very little to choose between the 40 schools listed. The first 27 have higher academic results and/or are located in more easily accessible areas. The differences are more in location, boys/girls/co-ed, religion, and facilities. All schools have good reputations and are in alphabetical order only.
