LOVE LEARNING: Academic excellence is enhanced through cultivating interests and abilities beyond the classroom.

Amity College is an independent K-12 school with campuses in western and south-western Sydney as well as the Illawarra region.

The Prestons campus includes a co-educational primary school as well as boys and girls high schools for years 7-12.

School spokesperson Matt Wilson said the school's motto was Inspire, Explore, Achieve.

"Amity College's warm and caring environment is conducive to learning in all aspects of life," Mr Wilson said.

"Being a multi-campus, non-denominational independent school, we welcome students from all backgrounds and appreciate and celebrate the diversity they bring into our school community."

He said Amity College had earned a reputation for academic achievement.

"As one of the leading schools in the region we believe in assisting students through effective Learning Support programs," Mr Wilson said.

"Academic excellence is enhanced through cultivating student interests and abilities beyond the classroom via an extensive range of co-curricular activities.

"Our Pastoral Care initiatives are designed to provide students with intellectual, personal, emotional and social nourishment, allowing them to establish a firm sense of identity and belonging."

In recent years the school has achieved top ranks in subjects such as Business Studies, Business Services, PDHPE, maths and Turkish.
