Northern Beaches Christian School is a K-12 independent, co-educational Christian School located in Terrey Hills. We provide a unique blend of collaboration and curiosity, where students are engaged and passionate about their learning.
Collaboration is at the heart of NBCS life. It is encouraged through careful architectural design, allowing a learning environment that brings dynamic teams of students together, building a suite of skills that will be critical to 21st Century careers. In addition, relationships between NBCS and parents are considered paramount in enabling students to thrive.
Curiosity is fostered at every turn, protecting and nourishing the innate curiosity within each child and enhancing problem solving. Where possible, student-led learning allows students to select their preferred method of learning a topic: for example, whether that be through art, poetry, digital platform or speech. This approach engages students, harnesses their passions and enhances their learning outcomes. In addition, it also means NBCS students love coming to school.
The NBCS community values the reality of a shared Christian faith. Our mission, Excellence in Education - Christianity in Action, places faith and education at the heart of all that we do. We want this confident hope to drive the perspective of our students into the future and to be the catalyst for individual spiritual understanding and growth, while providing experiences that put faith in action.
An extensive bus network brings the majority of students to NBCS, from Palm Beach to Cremorne on the beaches, Hornsby to Ryde in the west, and everywhere in between. Even Kindy students enjoy the independence of travelling safely to and from school on bus, and are matched with older ‘Bus Monitor Buddies’.
