About Us

It has a mix of old and new heritage listed buildings with state of the art Science laboratories, a multi-purpose centre and a national standard Equestrian Centre. NEGS also boasts a range of resources for extra-curricular activities catering for the needs of each student.

St John’s Junior School has a family atmosphere where parental involvement is encouraged. The school caters for boys and girls from Transition (4-5 year olds) to Year 6. St John’s classes are structured so that each student’s learning style is catered for and each student is strongly supported in his or her learning.

To whom much is given, much is required

The New England Girls School has over 100 years experience inspiring girls to embrace learning and effect change for a better world.

NEGS has a long-established tradition where every girl is known and valued. Staff work closely with the girls and their families to facilitate the best all-round education available. Girls are equipped and empowered by the values we celebrate, realising the potential in each student and providing a balanced education that addresses the academic, social, emotional, physical and spiritual aspects of each student’s life. At NEGS, girls have the opportunity to develop into what they want to be. We cherish balance and offer rich and diverse co-curricular opportunities, including membership of Round Square that provides a wider global perspective. We are very proud of our school and our students. Ultimately, you will find a school with warmth, Christian values and an integrity that has resulted in NEGS and its junior school, St John’s, becoming one of Australia’s most respected rural schools.

With opportunity and privilege comes responsibility
