Since 1858, Melbourne Grammar School has been providing an outstanding education in the heart of Melbourne. From the moment students step on campus at MelbourneGrammar School, they join a learning community where staff, students and their families work together to learn and grow. The focus on academic achievement is reflected in students’ outstanding results, while the school’s commitment to developing the “whole person” is reflected in its strong pastoral care and co-curricular activities.

Facilities: Melbourne Grammar School comprises three campuses. Grimwade House is the coeducational junior school in Caulfield, catering to boys and girls from Prep to Year 6. Wadhurst, the dedicated middle school for boys in Years 7 and 8, and SeniorSchool, for boys from Years 9 to 12, are both located in South Yarra, close to the CBD and overlooking Melbourne’s Royal Botanic Gardens. Facilities at each campus include a library, a hall, a physical education centre, a music school, a chapel, computer laboratories, an indoor swimming pool, tennis courts and playing fields.

Curriculum: The academic program is designed to give students a thorough grounding in the major disciplines, encourage flexibility of mind, lead students into co-operative teamwork and prepare them for lifelong learning. A wide range of subjects is offered, including a Chinese language programme from Prep level.

Extra-curricular activities: Students take part in a diverse range of co-curricular and extra-curricular activities that engage their passions and allow them to develop strong relationships with their peers, coaches and staff. A comprehensive sports program, opportunities in music, drama and the arts, and a diverse range of community service activities are just some of the options available for students across the school.

Welfare and personal development: The school’s aim is to provide a well-rounded education that develops students’ physical, emotional, psychological, social and spiritual growth. Across the school, the educational experience guides students to become productive, responsible and caring citizens of the future. At each campus, students are encouraged to build their leadership skills though engaging personal development activities.

Boarding: Boys have been boarding at Melbourne Grammar School since 1858. Boarders enter a caring, inclusive environment that helps them thrive. Dedicated staff and a structured schedule assist boarders to achieve their academic potential, build relationships, gain confidence and learn independence in preparation for their transition to tertiary study and adult life. Life within the school’s boarding houses is like a home away from home. The boys occupy three elegant Victorian terrace houses located close to the city centre, overlooking Melbourne’s Royal Botanic Gardens. The boarders also have access to the school’s sporting facilities and a rich
range of extracurricular activities, which allow them to appreciate everything the school has to offer.
