Welcome to John Colet Primary School Belrose Sydney

Welcome to John Colet School, a K – 6 co-educational, multi-faith school in Belrose on the Northern Beaches of Sydney. It is an honour to direct such an educational foundation, based as it is on principles of academic excellence and rigour.


John Colet has well-kept grounds and beautiful buildings.Since its inception in 1985, our focused teaching, proven methodology and effective delivery of the NSW curriculum has consistently placed us among the top ranking primary schools in Australia. The effectiveness of our teaching program can be seen in happy, motivated children who are enthusiastic about their studies.

Part of the uniqueness of the school is in the high demands we place on the children. We have for example, a stimulating program of classical and modern languages, annual Shakespeare performances by all classes and regular benchmark assessments.

Another dimension of the school which gives the children focus and resilience is Mindfulness training. Our multi-faith philosophy introduces the children to their responsibilities as global citizens. We have found over the years that our approach prepares the children for success in high school, and life beyond, and instils in them fine qualities of courage, resilience, fair-play and empathy.

I look forward to welcoming you to the family of John Colet School.
