St Paul’s College was founded in the 1850s, during the high-point of the Australian goldrush, a time of limitless hope, as the original college of Australia’s first university. It is unusually old, but ever-new.
St Paul’s students put their hands up to lead, serve and build. During 2000-14, three founded Sydney Genesis, five headed the University Union, five were Convocation Medallists and seven were Rhodes Scholars, chosen for their academic ability and practical vision.
The College buildings date from the 1850s. They are a particularly fine example of neo-gothic design, and are a constant reminder of generations of students who have lived within these walls and gone on to do high-minded, fruitful and brilliant things.
We have one foot firmly grounded in history, but we are also focused on the horizon ahead of us. In 2016 we'll be embarking on a new architecturally designed Paul's wing.
The best things done at Paul’s are based on teamwork, not just in sport but also in learning – in “Education of the Young by the Young”. Winning is the result of living and working together.
It is an exciting time for the College as it builds upon the excellence of its students in so many fields over so many years to expand its facilities and increase its engagement with the University.

In November 2016 the College Council formally approved the project to expand the College. As these plans now start to become a reality, we would like to take this opportunity to provide you with details of the approved vision for the future of the College.
During 2014-18 the world marks the centenary of World War One. The war devastated and transformed St Paul’s College. In September 2014 the College marked the centenary of the death of Brian Pockley, a Pauline and one of the very first men to be killed in the war during the period of centenary we make a particular effort on Anzac Day. Stories of all the twenty men from this College who died in the war can be found in this website.
