As an independent, forward thinking girls’ school, Ruyton is committed to preparing girls for a lifetime of learning, leadership and engagement in the global community. Our vision is to inspire girls to be bold and to educate girls to live lives of impact and purpose.

Ruyton’s Early Learning, Junior and Senior Schools are situated on the one campus, fostering a strong sense of belonging and authentic connection. Opportunities for students to interact across year levels and across sub-schools fosters mentoring and meaningful connections.


Our learning environments are purposely designed to inspire creativity, engagement and innovative thinking. A blend of heritage and modern buildings fitted with state-of-the-art facilities provide a place where our students gain the skills for tomorrow.


Students experience an innovative programme of learning, leadership and engagement in our global community throughout their years at Ruyton. Our academic programme is broad, challenging and creative, with an emphasis on personalised learning. Strong foundations in literacy and numeracy alongside specialist lessons in STEM, Drama, Library, Music, Languages, PE start from Prep and continue through Junior and Senior School.

Girls experience signature programmes such as: Outdoor Education, South House in Year 4, Innovate Ed in Years 7 and 8, and an extensive selection of electives in Year 9 and 10. In Year 11 and 12 girls participate in our unique Co-ordinate Programme with Trinity Grammar School.


The extensive Co-curricular Programme at Ruyton enables our girls to follow their passions and challenge themselves in different ways to discover their true capacity. Essential life skills and characteristics are gained, such as time management, resilience, grit and independence. Ruyton girls develop as women of character and integrity.
