|About Claremont College
Welcome to Claremont College. In 2012 we celebrated our 130th anniversary, making us one of the oldest independent schools in Sydney, if not Australia. We love our school and our fabulous school community. As you tour our website, I am sure you will see that Claremont College is a school where students and staff are ‘inspired for life’. It is not an easy task to describe the depth and richness of our school but it is most certain that the ‘My School Website’ and associated data (published annually) does not even come close in attempting to do so.
I hope that the following words help you to paint a picture of why I believe that Claremont College is wonderful school and a safe and nurturing place for children to come to every day.
"Claremont College is a Christ centred, child focussed school filled with learning and discovery, excitement, fun, creativity, colour, music, sport, drama, challenge, celebration, care and friendship, family, encouragement, a love of God in Jesus and a love of the fullness of life."
Equipping children with the skills and attitudes to be happy and successful in life has been the work of Claremont College since it was founded in 1882. Initially established as a girls’ secondary day and boarding school, we are now a thriving co-educational primary school with approximately 360 students from Kindergarten to Year 6.
Thank you for your interest in our school.

Anglican Schools Corporation
Claremont College is one of 19 schools owned and operated by the Anglican Schools Corporation (ASC). ASC is an incorporated body that was established by the Anglican Church Diocese of Sydney to develop and operate Anglican schools which aim to provide affordable, quality Christian education to local communities. The finances and operations of ASC are separate from those of the Diocese. ASC neither receives financial support from the Diocese, nor does the Corporation contribute financially to the Diocese.
The ASC Group Office provides financial and other administrative services to each school within the ASC group. A small portion of income received by each school supports the overall operation of ASC, which not only includes providing services to current ASC schools, but also includes assisting in acquiring or establishing additional ASC schools. To this end, the number of schools in the ASC group has increased from five in 1995 to 19 in 2014.
