Location and facilities
Ascham is a single campus school, well-served by public transport and close to everything Sydney has to offer.
One campus for everything
Ascham is designed to accommodate all living and learning needs in a single, 5-hectare campus. From their earliest years to completing their HSC, boarding and day girls can call our Edgecliff campus home and be in easy reach of Sydney Harbour, Bondi Beach, buses, trains and ferries and Sydney’s wider social, arts and entertainment offerings.
Ascham occupies a prime position on New South Head Road, Edgecliff, in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs, close to Sydney Harbour, three kilometres from the CBD and five kilometres from coastal beaches. Ascham is well-served by all forms of public transport and is also within easy walking distance of Darling Point and Double Bay ferry wharves.
