Welcome

Brigidine College St Ives is a Catholic independent school dedicated to the education of girls.

Framed by its motto, Fortiter et Suaviter, Strength and Gentleness, this education combines the spiritual, academic, physical and cultural dimensions of learning. With excellent academic results, a high level of achievement in the performing arts and sport and a strong commitment to service, girls at Brigidine are challenged to think and experience beyond their boundaries, to have the courage to question their world and model Christ’s teachings in their lives.

Brigidine girls are encouraged and developed so that they can recognise the challenges of the world they are in and help create the world into which they will venture. Integrity and ethical decision-making are at the core of their thinking and underpin their leadership. And all of this happens in a community which values and celebrates success in all its manifestations.

There is a spirit in this school worth experiencing.
