The School

Wollemi College is an independent boys' college that teaches the Catholic Faith. We are situated on 10 hectares in Werrington, in Sydney's west and have been developing this site since 2004. Roll is now over 360 with the 2nd stream now starting. The College grew out of Orchard Hills Preparatory School which was founded in 1999 by a group of parents and teachers, the PARED (Parents for Education) Foundation, on the principles that parents are the primary educators and that schools exist to give parents every support. This support is found in the quality of the academic curriculum, in the way that staff work with students and parents in the unique tutorial system, in the emphasis on character development and virtues in the curriculum, and in the concern that staff and peer example be fully positive and supportive of parents. Home and school are united.
