The Knox School offers ELC 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 Core values of Achievement, Respect, Resilience, Responsibility, Care and Empathy are reflected in everything we do. 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 College (Years 10 to 12), all located on the one campus.

Facilities: Facilities at The Knox School 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 school, The Knox School aims to extend every individual so they gain the satisfaction of realising their academic potential. Every student at every level is individually catered for. 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. At the senior level, both VCE and VET subjects are offered along with the opportunity to undertake university extension studies. In the Middle School, the curriculum provides students with the opportunity to develop their individual interests with an extensive elective program. In the Junior School, the curriculum is designed to challenge and stimulate young minds and to allow teachers to work with students on an individual level. A commitment to smaller classes enables teachers to deliver a dynamic, varied program with attention given to the individual learning of each student. Homework and formal examinations are standard features of the school’s assessment practice and regular testing and reporting are carried out.

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. Activities include music, performing arts, equestrian, Tournament of Minds, sport, outdoor education and debating. Students are encouraged to participate in an extensive range of activities centred on building self-confidence, public speaking skills, organisational abilities and personal development.

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.
