St Pauls Catholic College is a private boys' High School in Greystanes, New South Wales. It is named after the Christian patron, St Paul. It was originally named St Simon Stock High School and Newman High School. It is behind the OLQP Parish in Greystanes and next to OLQP Primary School, in which the school is intimately involved. Its vicinity becomes the host of the annual Maltese Festival around September.
St Paul's Catholic College was founded in 1958, commonly referred to as the new Catholic School in the district of Pendle Hill. It was originally named St Simon Stock School.
