Primary School for Years K to 6 in Belrose, Sydney

John Colet School is a multi-faith, co-ed, independent K-6 school, located within a peaceful bushland setting in Belrose, on the Northern Beaches of Sydney. Comprised of two classes at each year level, our focus is on the development of character, attention, and values, which are the basis of academic achievement.

Alongside the core NSW syllabus, the curriculum includes Shakespeare, weekly Philosophy classes, Sanskrit, Choral singing and an enriched Art program. For the development of character and emotional awareness, the children are introduced to simple exercises in mindfulness and inner stillness.

Our teachers stay with the same class for several years. This develops the relationship between teacher and pupil, supporting social and emotional growth while reducing unnecessary interruption to academic progress.

It is our belief that the primary stage of education is fundamental. A solid academic foundation within a supportive community is the balance that is so important. Our enriched curriculum builds students’ confidence to engage with whatever is in front of them, which naturally inspires a love of learning.
