About us

To succeed in a connected world you have to learn differently

Santa Sophia Catholic College Gables provides a Christ centred environment, aimed at educating the whole child, and helping students to be people of true wisdom through faith, hope and love.

Santa Sophia Catholic College is a Catholic learning community that serves the dynamic new area of Gables. It is establishing a new approach for pre-school to post school learning within an extended school day. It achieves this through a developmental and student-centred approach to learning with a focus on ‘learning how to learn’.

The College brings together the best we know about how young people learn and how to teach them. Within a Catholic faith environment, students will learn how to be responsible global citizens, how to think creatively and critically, how to communicate and work collaboratively.

We are a school that fosters imagination and innovation
