Feeder Schools

Three Catholic schools, St Catherine’s StirlingSt Joseph’s Murray Bridge and St Francis de Sales College, across the Hills-Murray region formed to create the Hills-Murray Catholic Schools Partnership, working together to allow continuity of a Catholic education and connection between our schools.

Each of our schools is committed to providing opportunities for our students to grow academically, socially, emotionally and spiritually. We believe strongly in the link between student learning and wellbeing and consequently prioritise personal development that provides the opportunity for every student to be the best that they can be in their learning.

Students from St Catherine's Stirling can commence at St Francis de Sales College in Year 7, and students from St Joseph's Murray Bridge can commence in Year 10.


We have a number of students who commence with us in Reception from kindergartens all over the Adelaide Hills region.
