About Us

Pittwater House is an independent, non-selective, secular school offering a private school education for students from Pre-Kindergarten to Year 12.

The School is located in Collaroy, on Sydney's picturesque Northern Beaches, and is run coherently in three divisions:

  • The Junior School: Pre-Kindergarten, Junior Girls' College and Boys' Preparatory School
  • The Girls' College: Year 7 -12
  • The Boys' Grammar School: Year 7 - 12

Our five tenets

With consistent reference to our HEROIC Core Values, at Pittwater House we remain committed to five key tenets, or 'volumes', which enable us to deliver an exceptional educational experience for our students and their families.

Our philosophy

At Pittwater House there is a great spirit of friendliness, mutual respect, manners and a recognition of achievement, all reflected in the school motto semper diligens - Latin for 'always hardworking'.

It underpins the attitude to which we apply ourselves each day at school in all that we do.

Our vision

Pittwater House will continue to be recognised as a leading learning community, committed to excellence in all its endeavours and where every student matters every day as they experience true balance in education.

Our mission

Pittwater House is committed to developing high achieving students who are connected to each other and to the communities in which they live and in which they will serve.

“Each of these elements form a unique attribute of our School, which collectively provide a balanced education for our young men and women, so they may flourish beyond the school gates.”

Dr Nancy Hillier, Principal
