Location and Transport
Mount St Benedict College is located in the north-west of Sydney at Pennant Hills.
The College is situated on the corner of Pennant Hills and Beecroft Roads, with a native blue gum forest at the rear of the College. Our students commute from a broad range of suburbs in the Upper North Shore, Northern Districts and North-Western Districts of Sydney.
Students travelling via train use the Northern Line and walk approximately 10 minutes from either Pennant Hills or Beecroft Stations. Buses also operate from Pennant Hills Station to the College.
Mount St Benedict College is well serviced by buses which drop and pick up students in Beecroft Road before the start and at the end of the College day. Parents should make their own enquiries to TRANSPORT INFOLINE if train or bus travel is required.
The School OPAL card gives eligible students free or discounted travel between home and school, using the train, bus and ferry services you nominate in your application. The School Opal card replaces the old paper School Student Transport Scheme (SSTS) travel pass. For further information go to transportnsw.info/school-students
The TRANSPORT INFOLINE contains information about which bus/train service your daughter will require. It also contains timetables and maps.
