About us

Nestled in a beautiful valley just 8km north of the NSW/ACT border, Sutton Primary enjoys the best of country lifestyle and values with Canberra’s city resources on our doorstep.

The school is situated in a small rural village. The pleasant physical environment features extensive landscaped and grassed areas which are complemented by the natural reserves and farming areas bordering the school.

Sutton Primary School was established in 1871 and is now a vibrant, thriving school community of 11 classes comprising approximately 270 students.

The school crest features the Eastern Bearded Dragon. The bearded lizard was a common sight in and around the school before and during the 1960’s. To keep a tally of the lizards, under the direction of Principal Mr Chris Bayliss, the students at the school marked and monitored the growth and breeding of the lizards. The lizard was eventually incorporated into the school’s emblem which was designed by Rosemary Bartlett in 1982.

Our mission at Sutton Primary is to continue to build close partnerships with parents and the wider community to provide a quality education that values the future of all children.
