THE KNOX SCHOOL


The Knox School offers Early Learning to Year 12 education in an environment that fosters a love of learning and individual achievement. Established in 1982, The Knox School has evolved into a modern and dynamic school serving a diverse student population. The school’s strong values underpin everything — Values of Achievement, Responsibility, Respect, Resilience, Care and Empathy. These values are reflected throughout the varied curriculum and all activities at the school. The Knox School has outstanding facilities situated on an attractive eight-hectare site in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne, only metres from the EastLink freeway interchange, making it easily accessible from Melbourne’s eastern and southern suburbs. It comprises an Early Learning Centre (Pre-Prep 3 and 4), Junior School (Prep to Year 6), Middle School (Years 7 to 9), and Senior School (Years 10 to 12), all located on the one campus.

Facilities: Include the Information Common Building featuring a unique Multimedia Studio, Resource Centre, computer classrooms, careers and counselling services and Health Centre with a full-time nurse. Located throughout the grounds are a 400-seat auditorium, state-of-the-art Hospitality and Food Technology Centre and exceptional sporting facilities including a synthetic turf floodlit hockey field, extensive ovals, grassed playing areas and a multi-purpose sports centre housing two basketball courts and fully equipped weights and cardio rooms.

Curriculum: Throughout the entire school staff recognise the importance of the core subjects of English, Mathematics, Science and The Humanities and aim to provide the opportunity for every individual to gain the satisfaction of realising their academic potential. From the support of the Assisted and Accelerated Learning Department to the challenge of enrichment programs, staff strive to ensure that every student at every level is individually catered for.

The curriculum is designed to meet the challenge of preparing young people for the technology-based global society of the 21st century. Staff incorporate Learning Technology across a broad range of subjects including Multimedia, Robotics, Games Programming, Music Technology, Web Authoring, Graphic Design and Photography. Unique multimedia facilities allow staff to integrate this technology, utilising a fully equipped studio to create audio and visual recordings.
The curriculum is constantly reviewed to ensure that it continues to provide the optimum choice of subjects to suit the widely differing career paths and goals of individual students.
In the Junior School the curriculum is designed to challenge and stimulate young minds, all while providing a strong focus on literacy and numeracy skills. The Middle School curriculum aims to improve students’ self-confidence and to develop individuality.

Sport: The sport and physical education curriculum encourages students to achieve personal and team goals, to foster the sporting spirit and set higher challenges in a health-conscious environment. Students have successfully represented The Knox School in Eastern Independent Schools’ finals and have competed at local, state, national and international levels. There is no compulsory Saturday sport.

Extra-curricular activities: Extra-curricular activities are an essential and enjoyable part of school life for all students at The Knox School.  The school offers a wide range of co-curricular activities designed to enable all students to develop interests, skills and personal qualities that will enrich their lives now and in the future. The co-curricular activities on offer at The Knox School are extensive and encompass Music, Performing Arts, Sport, Outdoor Education, Equestrian, Debating and Technology. A highlight of the co-curricular program is the unique opportunity to learn a musical instrument from Year 2 to Year 7 at no extra cost.

Student welfare programs: The Knox School has a firm commitment to pastoral care. Students are encouraged to take pride in their own and others’ achievements. Differences in background, religion and learning styles are celebrated.
