A Global School

Telephone02 9207 6300

Sydney Distance Education Primary School is a global leader in providing high quality and innovative distance education to primary school students. We enrol NSW students from public and independent schools who are temporarily unable to attend their local school for a variety of circumstances. Our differentiated and adaptable approach to learning makes the school ideal for families travelling in Australia and around the world. The SDEPS teaching program provides students with an excellent opportunity to enhance their education during their extended absence. Our highly qualified teachers cater for all students’ learning needs through personalised learning programs. We create highly engaging and innovative learning materials aligned to NESA Syllabuses. Students are provided with individualised support, as well as given opportunities for collaboration through our online lessons and peer to peer interaction. 

Please note!

From the 1st of November, the Domestic Traveller and Overseas Enrolment Categories are open as per the instructions of the NSW Department of Education.  Applications will now be accepted.

We definitely will look back on this year with a smile. It’s been hugely challenging but it’s definitely helped me to see all the in’s and out’s of my daughter’s learning style and struggles and I think it will hugely benefit us going back to ‘regular’ school. Thank you for everything!

My daughter and myself had a great couple of terms with SDEPS. Thank you staff for all your hard work.

We will miss SDEPS. I would love to re enrol in the near future if we intend to travel again.

Thanks again it was a pleasure to be enrolled in SDEPS.

Our 12 months of travelling Australia is finally coming to an end. We have had such an amazing time, with a lifetime of incredible memories. We would like to thank all the teachers and staff at SDEPS for their dedication and support while our son attended your school. It has certainly been an experience and is looking forward to going back to school with his friends.
