Abbotsleigh is an independent Anglican school for girls in the diocese of Sydney. Each girl is encouraged to develop her potential in a caring Christian environment by fostering her pursuit of personal and academic excellence. By providing a broad, well balanced education the School helps each girl to develop both independence and interdependence, an appreciation of diversity and a philosophy of life which will enable her to be a courageous, constructive and compassionate world citizen with a will to serve.
Abbotsleigh's motto is tempus celerius radio fugit (time flies faster than a weaver's shuttle). As the shuttle flies a pattern is woven, with the threads being the people, buildings and events. The pattern is Abbotsleigh as it continues to grow in complexity and richness each year.
