Head of College’s Welcome

Welcome to Oxley College and thank you for visiting our website. We are delighted you are interested in our College. It is a privilege to be the new Head of Oxley College. As one of the pre-eminent schools in New South Wales, we are proud to provide excellence in education in a co-educational non-denominational setting. I hope you enjoy finding out about us and seeing the images which capture our unique culture and environment. I am sure the website will provide you with a glimpse of life at Oxley and the Southern Highlands.

Oxley College is a very special community; it’s a place where each child is valued and supported to discover their talents and flourish in an increasing complex world. Our students are known by the staff and are valued for their unique gifts each one brings to our community. Each student is encouraged to be intellectually curious, to be strong independent thinkers and to take on the challenge of being the best human they can be.

All fine schools look to engage the body, mind, heart and spirit. One of the best things about Oxley is the positive environment for learning which permeates through the entire College. Students are at the heart of our work, and their breadth and depth of involvement is extraordinary. The staff here are professional and dedicated and demonstrate a deep commitment and care about each student’s education.

At Oxley opportunities abound for our students, within and beyond the classroom! It is about stretching minds and broadening horizons, providing a cultural richness and focusing on the education and care of the whole child. Our learning spaces are amongst the trees, on a beautifully landscaped campus in the Southern Highlands.

I am proud to be a part of Oxley College and I want Oxley students to be proud of the community of which they are a part; proud of their own and the College’s collective achievements; and proud of who they are as young people and what they stand for when they leave our grounds.

There is so much to see and enjoy at Oxley College – I look forward to welcoming you to our school and warmly invite you to visit us and experience the Oxley difference for yourself.

With best wishes,

Jenny Ethell
