The Essington School is a parent-led, independent, non denominational and co-educational school offering quality education from Pre-School to Year 12.

Powered by the pioneering spirit of the Northern Territory for over 30 years, our vision is to create an inspiring environment that fuels creativity and imagination, motivates students to be the best that they can be and where everyone can belong.

At Essington we are guided by local expertise and global thinking. We exist by design to deliver inspiring education to families, to build connections within the community and prepare our students with purpose for the world beyond.
