Our iconic Rose Bay location in Sydney’s eastern suburbs is one of Kambala’s greatest assets. Girls enjoy the open space of the oval and lawn areas as well as the beautiful landscaped grounds surrounding the heritage-listed Tivoli building. Flexible learning spaces are complemented by specialist areas for Visual Arts, Music, Science, Design and Technology and Multimedia.

Kambala is an exceptional and dynamic place of learning where girls are intellectually curious and driven to question. The learning adventure begins in Hampshire House – Kambala’s Early Learning Centre, which operates from 7.30am to 6.00pm. The Junior School builds on the foundations laid in Hampshire House, providing a supportive, vibrant and active learning environment where girls start to develop a deeper sense of community and togetherness.

Senior School is an exciting time in a Kambala girl’s journey. Year 7 is a major intake year where much emphasis is placed on the induction and transition process. After Year 7 students can elect more subjects each year, until Years 11 and 12 where the widest possible choice is made available through the option of the Higher School Certificate (HSC) or the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme. Kambala consistently ranks in the top non-selective girls’ schools in Sydney and is one of only a few schools in the state to offer the IB Programme.

Boarding holds a special place in our community. Facilities have been designed for individual nurturing. Tivoli, Kambala’s Boarding House for Years 7 to 9, is a communal environment where all rooms are shared; catering for younger students with a well-resourced study section and spacious recreational living. Fernbank, the Boarding House for Years 10 to 12, allows greater privacy and independence where Boarders develop the skills necessary for life after school. What makes Kambala boarding so special is our healthy and optimistic environment where girls support each other, and firm friendships are forged.
