Selwyn House School offers an exceptional opportunity for girls from age three through to their graduation at the end of Year 8 to grow and learn in a stimulating and nurturing environment. As an International Baccalaureate World School teaching the Primary Years Programme, our focus is on developing globally minded learners and leaders.

Together with each family, our teachers’ work to ensure we inspire all our girls to love and be committed to learning as they develop their own unique way of being ‘remarkable’. To achieve this we actively encourage the girls to think about what sort of person they want to be, what sort of life they want to lead and what they are prepared to stand up and fight for.

We believe in the strength of tradition, the promise of the future and the power of education and inspiration to equip our young people to face our continually changing world with confidence and enthusiasm. Our students stand out amongst their peers. They are articulate and determined young women who have the values, skills and attributes needed to not only achieve their goals but to make a difference in their communities.
