Welcome to Dainfern College

A world of education. An education for the world.

Dainfern College is an independent co-educational day school based on a Christian ethos and catering for students from Grade 0 through to Grade 12.

 

We focus on developing the life skills necessary to unlock our students’ unique personal potential and to nurture creative thinkers with the confidence to become leaders. This is done through the provision of a values-based, holistic, internationally relevant and quality education that emphasises creativity, innovation and thinking skills. We believe in leadership, inspiring individuals, and equipping our girls and boys to thrive in a modern global community.

 

We would love to show you around our beautiful campus and give you the opportunity to meet some of the remarkable young people and staff who make the Dainfern College family what it is.
