To whom much is given, much is required.


The New England Girls School has over 100 years experience inspiring girls to embrace learning and affect change for a better world. Our primary aim is to encourage each girl to develop into being a self-confident, inquiring, tolerant, positive young woman, with an independent mind, as an individual who respects the differences of others. By the time she leaves the school, we want each girl to have that true sense of self-worth that will enable her to stand up for a purpose greater than herself, and, in doing so, to be of value to society.

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.
