Welcome to our school, a community of which you can be part.
Northcross Christian School has been sharing God’s word with families in the Ryde area for over 30 years.
Northcross has created a place of quality education for children K-6, where everyone is included, respected and encouraged. You can see it in the children’s faces.
Christian Education National (CEN) have a wonderful series of statements on their website that beautifully encapsulates what we would seek to develop in our children;
When I grow up I want to be LOVING,
When I grow up I want to be JOYFUL,
When I grow up I want to make WISE CHOICES,
When I grow up I want to be a PEACEMAKER,
When I grow up I want to be GENTLE,
When I grow up I want to be FAITHFUL,
When I grow up I want to see the WORLD THE WAY THAT GOD DOES.
At Northcross we want our students to have TOUGH MINDS, TENDER HEARTS and SERVING HANDS.
In the Weekend Australian (October 1/10/16) ‘YourSchool 2015’ results, Northcross was once again listed in the top 100 Primary Schools in Australia coming in at 53 (2014 was 86, 2013 was 96). These statistics are based on the NAPLAN results covering thousands of Primary Schools all over Australia. In terms of all private or independent schools in Australia, Northcross is in the top 50 Primary Schools coming in at 29 (2014 was 41). Once again we are the top performing NSW Primary School in the Christian Schools Australia (CSA) network. In addition, Northcross has the lowest fees of the top performing 50 non-government, non-Catholic schools in Australia.
We are mindful that NAPLAN is just one indicator of the success of a school and the education it provides. What it does say is that Northcross excels in academic performance as measured by this test. This is a great recognition of the dedication to learning by students, staff and parents of Northcross and we are thankful for such results. May these results encourage us to excel in all of life; spiritually, aesthetically, physically, socially and emotionally.
“Blessed are those who trust in the Lord and have made the Lord their hope and confidence. They are like trees planted along a riverbank, with roots that reach deep into the water. Such trees are not bothered by the heat or worried by long months of drought. Their leaves stay green and they go right on producing delicious fruit.”
Jeremiah 17: 7-8
