The Nirimba Education Precinct is a multi-institutional educational campus located at Quakers Hill in the rapidly developing area of North West Sydney. Comprised of co-educational secondary providers, TAFE and a University College, the Precinct was established in 1995 with the intent to leverage the various partners' expertise to provide flexible opportunities for post compulsory education for the students of Greater Western Sydney. With a focus on excellence, innovation and collaborative approaches to educational offerings, the Precinct partners are able to provide a unique learning experience and various pathways opportunities on a single campus.
Partners in the Precinct include the NSW Department of Education and Training as represented by Wyndham College, and TAFE NSW - Western Sydney Institute, the Catholic Education Office as represented by Terra Sancta College; and the University of Western Sydney represented by UWSCollege. Joint activities on the campus are governed by a Board with representation from all parties and a rotating chair. The Board strategy is implemented through two subcommittees, one focused on educational innovation and opportunities, and the other on operational matters.

Yet again students from Terra Sancta and Wyndham Colleges (the two senior high schools on the Nirimba Education Precinct) have attained outstanding results in the University of Western Sydney units they undertook at UWSCollege. The students were presented with their awards at a special ceremony at Nirimba on Wednesday 30 April. The fifteen students achieved: seven High Distinctions; six Distinctions; and two Credits. This will entitle thirteen students to a special Nirimba scholarship with UWS. All students will be provided with an early offer of entry to the University.
