Hi, We have recently moved to Greenwich Sydney and need to enrol our son into a private school. There seem to be quite a few however we don't know which ones have good reputations and down-to-earth students. All opinions welcome!

Nearest to you is Riverview - if:

1) money is unlimited

and

2) you are Catholic (this may not be so important if you meet 1)

How old is your child?
What sort of school do you want?

I'm the only Sydney person active here - and I'm a child-free zone, I'm afraid. But I'll answer if I can.

@margo,
Thanks Margo. Our son is 16 months old and we are Anglican so a Catholic school isn't really an option for us unfortunately. We're after a school that offers good sport and music programs (which most do) and performs well academically.

@Dimity,
Have no suggestions at all for a 16 month old. I have a 16 month old godson - I don't think he's going to school - I've taught him all I know already....

Poor little bugger will be swamped!

Think about Shore: Sydney Church of England Grammar:
http://www.shore.nsw.edu.au/shore.html

The Northbridge campus has early education, and kindergarten to year 2.
North Sydney campus takes from year 3 on.

Not sure about waiting lists and it will be expensive.

You may do better asking around at playgroups, etc, than taking advice from me - a childless old bat! There's probably some smaller private schools.

The local schools around that area may well be pretty good. (I'm an inner west old bat!)

And I don't think not being a catholic will stop him getting into the catholic schools - the bigger ones anyway.

Send him to Joey's and he'll be a great rugby player.

Get him taught by the Jesuits at Riverview - a politician is born Smile
