Rich in tradition, spirit and faith
There is something in the sandstone that makes Kincoppal-Rose Bay a special place.

Kincoppal-Rose Bay is a member of the international group of Sacred Heart Schools conducted by the Society of the Sacred Heart, a Catholic teaching order established by Saint Madeleine Sophie Barat in France in 1800.

The Convent of the Sacred Heart, Rose Bay, was founded in 1882. Kincoppal was established at Elizabeth Bay in 1909. The two schools were amalgamated in 1971 to become Kincoppal-Rose Bay School of the Sacred Heart.

Our original building was a private home called Claremont, which was built in 1851. It was first leased in 1882 and later purchased by the Society of the Sacred Heart.

The school's first permanent building was completed in 1888.  Our Chapel, designed by architect John Horbury Hunt, was completed in 1900. Since that time, more buildings have been added to meet the needs of our growing school community.

Our primary school was located in the main school building until 1951, when an adjoining property (an Italian villa) was purchased.  This was demolished in 1966 and replaced with the present junior school.

The Senior School was a full boarding school until the 1960s when day students were admitted.

In 1982, our school celebrated its centenary and the anniversary of the first religious Sacred Heart in Australia.  To commemorate the occasion Sister Leila Barlow wrote and published ‘Living Stones’, a book reviewing the spirit, tradition and events of the School's first hundred years.

In 2012, Kincoppal-Rose Bay celebrated 130 years of educating hearts and minds with gala events that brought together our diverse and supportive community.
