About Dainfern College: High School

Our educational approach at Dainfern College is embedded in two key concepts: Opportunity and Excellence.

At Dainfern College you will find a visionary educational environment built on traditional core values. We believe in developing the whole child through the provision of academic, sporting, cultural, leadership and outreach activities.

At the heart of a Dainfern College education is a values-based, relevant and excellent education. Our students write the internationally well-accepted IEB examination and a strong academic focus exists at the College. We are so proud of our IEB matric results - a 100% rate for 16 consecutive years and an average of 2.52 Distinctions per matriculant.

In the sporting, cultural and leadership spheres, a number of opportunities exist for students to explore and excel. We also have a well-entrenched outreach programme. As a proud Global Round Square school we share a strong underlying belief in learning and the development of every student into a whole person academically, physically, culturally and spiritually, within the supportive environment of a caring school community.

We believe in providing opportunities for all our High School students to grow and learn in an environment of support, kindness, respect, discipline and compassion. Our tutors, student leaders, counsellor and coaches provide strong pastoral care and an amazing spirit and camaraderie exist between students and staff. 

The pursuit of excellence is our goal in all we do. This is achieved through the combined effects of a passionate, talented staff and superb facilities. At Dainfern College we proudly offer our students “A world of education … an education for the world”.
