Danebank, an Anglican School for Girls, is non-selective and welcomes students from Pre-Kindergarten to Year 12. Danebank is widely acknowledged in the St George and Sutherland Shires for its nurturing, Christian environment, excellent academic outcomes, educational innovation and fine facilities. Students are supported and challenged in dynamic learning situations to become confident, articulate, successful women who will take leading roles in the wider community. Danebank has a strong academic tradition with more than 90% of graduates attending university, leading to professional careers. The school scores well above state averages in all academic measures. This comes from a highly qualified, successful staff and ever-expanding opportunities for students. Danebank is a thriving educational environment where students are empowered to discover their talents, develop their strengths and maintain the highest personal and academic standards. A broad extra-curricula program provides students with many opportunities to discover and develop their personal strengths. As a part of this, students are challenged to support the school’s motto of service, to make a difference in the wider community. The school believes that our students are privileged and therefore should support extensive charitable and service learning projects. Danebank’s impressive campus contains facilities with state-of-the-art infrastructure and equipment especially for Drama, Music, Visual Arts, Technology and Sports, enhancing opportunities for students to excel. In particular, the school has a reputation for outstanding sporting achievements, including at national level. Danebank also provides support for students with learning disabilities through a Life Skills unit in Years 7-12. These students are supported and valued by all sectors of the school community and study a separate Life Skills program. Full Fee paying overseas students are also welcomed into the secondary school. www.danebank.nsw.edu.au
