A unique and inspiring place where every child can discover the joy of learning

Hunter Hall is a school like no other. Housed in 19th century farm buildings on the outskirts of Penrith, our dedicated specialist teachers work with small classes to ensure every child discovers and embraces the joy of learning.

We treat every child as an individual, recognising and stretching their ability in a way that they find challenging and rewarding. Continually investing in our facilities and adapting our curriculum to meet their differing needs while maximise opportunities for all.

We believe school is about much more than meeting targets. It's about inspiring children and helping them connect with the world around them. Giving them the confidence to make friends while learning respect for themselves and others.

We will continue to build a unique stimulating environment where children can begin their learning journey. An independent school, our goals is to produces happy, confident, articulate children ready for their next challenge.
