Justine Mahon, Principal

Principal’s welcome

Why St Cuthbert’s? The simple answer is – We bring out the ‘amazing’ in every girl.

Welcome to St Cuthbert’s where we understand that choosing the right school for your daughter is one of the most important decisions you will make as a family.

Having raised my own three children and nurtured thousands of young people throughout my five decades as an educator, I know from experience that every child is unique in character and confidence, has different strengths and needs and will learn at a different pace. In the right learning environment they will blossom – as Principal of St Cuthbert’s I see evidence of that, every day.

I believe education is a partnership between school and family – together we will prepare your daughter for the world, socially, emotionally, academically and physically.

When you join St Cuthbert’s you are gifting your daughter an advantage she will carry through life – self-confidence, life-long friendships, wonderful memories and the tools for success.

“What matters most to me is that every girl is happy and fulfilled.”

Our recipe for success at St Cuthbert’s is a rich mix of traditional values, dedicated teachers, broad opportunities and exceptional facilities. What’s important to me is that every girl is able to succeed and thrive – through developing her individual strengths, expanding her thinking and building her inner confidence.

My commitment to you is to help your daughter to become even more amazing.

Are we the right fit for you and your daughter? I invite you to delve further into this website to find out more about us. Watch our videos, absorb the information and discover the essence of every girl’s St Cuthbert’s journey. Better still, come and experience St Cuthbert’s for yourself.
