Since its foundation in 1886, Ascham has continued to be a centre of excellence for the education of girls and young women and we uphold this standard proudly. An Ascham girl will be prepared both academically and personally to meet the demands of the 21st century and former students can be found the world over using this preparation to lead incredibly varied and distinctive lives. Ascham is a school known for outstanding academic results as well as providing an inclusive, warm, inspiring environment of day and boarding students who benefit from so much on offer, not least an exceptional academic program. This environment will provide your daughter with every means to become an independent learner and develop into a self-reliant, confident, compassionate young woman with a sense of purpose in the world.
Her days will be filled with interactive and challenging learning together with opportunities to develop talents within our wide range of co-curricular activities including high-level participation in a broad choice of sports, music, drama, clubs, debating and more. From international exchange programs and tours, school-based leadership and support programs, to House and Sister networks and community projects, her resilience will build as we help her develop the confidence to stretch herself and the security to stumble. - See more at: http://www.ascham.nsw.edu.au/About-Ascham/From-the-Head-of-School#sthash.7hvK89P8.dpuf
