Agnes School is an independent co-educational day school, with a Catholic ethos, founded on a belief that parents are the first educators of their children.

|Teaching approach of the school||
The primary focus of Agnes School’s educational philosophy is the development of true freedom that will enable its pupils to live a more complete human life, as opposed to the mere attainment of some technical skills or knowledge. This is understood by a “liberal arts” education; the root of the word “liberal” is the Latin word “liber,” meaning “free.” A liberal arts education increases one’s freedom, understood as the ability to embrace the Good, wherever it is truly recognized. It imparts the freedom necessary to join with the great minds of history, rising above one’s current situation and culture, to appreciate what is deepest in our human condition. Acquiring a liberal arts education is a life-long process; Agnes School strives to form life-long learners who have what the Blessed John Henry Cardinal Newman called a “habit of mind” in pursuit of intellectual excellence and the contemplative life. An education at Agnes School involves the acquisition of excellent study habits which together with an enquiring mind form the basis of a life-long love of learning.
