Marsden parents are looking for more from their daughters’ education than a certificate and a step up to university and career. Academic achievement matters, of course, and Marsden girls consistently perform exceptionally. But that’s only one measure of a Marsden education.
Marsden has given me the confidence to showcase my skills in a non-judgmental environment. I have learned to appreciate the opportunities I am given and use them to better the lives of the people around me.

Linda Zhang, Year 13, 2020

The ultimate goal

At Marsden, we’re striving for the ultimate goal:  equipping girls for lives of meaning, accomplishment and genuine happiness.

Marsden girls do well in life because they have confidence and self-belief. They have resilience—grit, we like to call it. They are creative, independent thinkers. And they see themselves as citizens of the world, with a responsibility to make a contribution. That’s a transformation that’s beyond the norm. 


It’s something you’ll understand by talking to our girls and experiencing their passion for school, for discovery… and for life. 

Passion for School

Come and meet some of our girls and take a tour to discover the Marsden difference.
