A School of the Sacred Heart

Why Stuartholme?

IJʿ is a Catholic Independent day and boarding secondary school for girls in Years 5  to 12 (Year 5 from 2024). As specialists in educating girls, a Stuartholme education provides an educational experience with opportunities for girls to be the best they can be, in all areas of their school-life and beyond.


To be the best she can be

Stuartholme’s mantra is “to be the best she can be” and it’s something the staff and students live by. Its meaning is derived from the way each student is treated, not as a number, but as an individual person.

Small school with large school opportunities

Stuartholme is in a unique position of being a small school, where every girl is known personally, but with large school opportunities, where students are challenged, enriched and encouraged, so no girl will ever ‘be lost in the crowd’.

International Sacred Heart School

As an international Sacred Heart School, Stuartholme has a reputation as a devoted, supportive learning environment, fostering a sense of community and belonging for each girl.

Along with more than 200 Sacred Heart schools in over 40 countries, the educational framework is guided by the Goals of Sacred Heart Education. These Goals articulate the forward-thinking and dynamic educational philosophy of Saint Madeleine Sophie Barat.


Stuartholme is home to over 125 Boarders and provides each girl with a quiet, safe environment where she can live and learn.

Our Boarders bring richness and diversity to the school, contributing a ‘specialness’ and ‘family’ dynamic to our vibrant community.

Opportunities to achieve

Students are engaged through dynamic teaching strategies and vibrant learning environments. Stuartholme is committed to inclusive education and best practice principles of teaching and learning with opportunities for students to strive for personal excellence. Enrichment and extension are available through curriculum differentiation, subject offerings, competitions and special programs.

Success for every girl

Success means something different to everyone, which is why our customised educational experience for each student is so important. The way we teach and how students learn is aimed at providing the best educational outcome for every girl.

Transforming her world

A ‘Stuartholme girl’ is empowered to transform her world. Our Social Justice Program increases our students’ awareness of social justice issues and provides them with opportunities to take action. The School prepares and inspires students to be active, informed and responsible global citizens.
