We invite you to take a virtual tour of our campus and hear from our Principal and students.

Pittwater House is an independent, secular school offering a well-rounded private school education to students from Pre-Kindergarten to Year 12.

Our innovative structure provides your child the best of both worlds, in a learning environment combining predominantly single-sex classes on one co-educational campus.

We maintain a modest student population to ensure that each individual is seen, known and cared for, so our staff can develop a true understanding of your child’s abilities, talents and needs – both inside and outside the classroom.

In the classroom, our highly qualified teachers use an evidence-based teacher-framed, student-led model known as ‘Deep Learning’, enabling students to master essential academic content and to become lifelong learners.

Outside the classroom, we offer students an array of co-curricular opportunities to cater to a diverse range of interests and abilities, most of which take place on our large campus.

Pittwater House offers your child countless ways to develop and thrive.

Pittwater House maintains a strong focus on each student’s academic growth which begins from the earliest years of school.

Our teacher-framed, student-led pedagogy, known as 'Deep Learning', develops the essential competencies of Citizenship, Character, Collaboration, Communication, Creativity, Critical Thinking to increase our students’ capacity to live and learn well.

Naturally, our passionate teachers are vital members of our community that strive for excellence in teaching each day, to inspire our students.

It is important that they also feel valued and supported, so that they may engage positively with students and build stronger connections with parents.

To ensure our teachers and students are happy and thriving, we focus on staff excellence and welfare, maintaining the best standards of practice and the highest levels of professionalism.
Pittwater House has a large 3.5 hectare campus offering playgrounds and leisure spaces for all ages, from Pre-Kindergarten to Year 12. We have a broad range of facilities onsite including a pool, a multipurpose playing field, numerous playgrounds, the Great Hall, outdoor courts, an indoor sports complex, the Performing Arts Precinct with tutor rooms and a Performing Arts Centre, creative art rooms and a health centre staffed by a Registered Nurse.

We also offer an after school care service onsite.

We run a private service of five buses for families living on the North Shore and in the North Beaches who are not served by commercial or governmental transport.

Pittwater House offers partial scholarships to students for outstanding academic potential and general excellence (creative arts and sports). Applications for 2024 scholarships are now closed. 

We offer a limited number of general excellence and academic excellence scholarships to students entering Years 7, 9 and 11.

Pittwater House offers partial scholarships for tuition fees only. Incidentals and all other expenses are charged at the usual rate. Please see our School Fees for more information.

Scholarships are open to current students of Pittwater House as well as students attending other schools. Applicants must be Australian residents.




Principal's Image

I thank you for considering Pittwater House for your child.

At Pittwater House there is a great spirit of friendliness, mutual respect and recognition of achievement, all reflected in the school motto 'semper diligens' — Latin for 'always hardworking’.

I am proud to be leading a school that offers a truly unique, balanced and nurturing approach to education from Pre-Kindergarten to Year 12. The School's philosophy is based on providing single-sex education within a co-educational environment. We offer modest class sizes and a focus on academic growth.

We specifically focus on the development of each and every child at Pittwater House. This approach mirrors my own principles, which are focused on cultivating student potential, encouraging strong personal values and creating well-rounded young people.

To learn more about our wonderful School, I encourage you to speak to our Registrar to book a Zoom Q&A with me.

I hope to meet you soon.

Kind regards,

Dr Nancy Hillier
