Caulfield Grammar School proudly offers a thriving learning environment that nourishes students to know who they are, what they value and why they are valued. These competencies are nurtured in the way we teach, the breadth of co-curricular offerings, and our commitment to every learner’s wellbeing. Caulfield Campus offers Year 7 to Year 12, along with Boarding from Year 9. State-of-the-art technology, blended with modern learning spaces and outstanding facilities, ensures that students can follow their passions.
We offer VCE subjects from Year 10
Our broad Years 7 and 8 core-curriculum ensures a strong foundation for success in senior years – including Learning Mentors monitoring academic and pastoral progress. Community Projects engage Year 9 students in holistic, real-world learning experiences. VCE subjects are offered from Year 10, with an emphasis on helping learners focus on preparation for entry to the tertiary course or career of their choice.
Teacher agility and student agency
Campus-based Teaching and Learning teams take collective ownership of developing strategic Teaching and Learning priorities. Our commitment to research-informed practice and ensuring a consistent experience for each student in the classroom and each learning environments is illustrated by our Quality Lesson Design Model. This Model ensures students have the opportunity to learn from experts (the teacher) and be active participants in their own learning. Students are encouraged to voice their thinking openly and to share and critique one another’s understandings – fostering responsible, active learners.
Cultural immersion and education outdoors
Students ‘learn by doing’ through authentic real-world connection and collaboration — immersing in diverse cultures to develop the skills to navigate our rapidly changing world, whether internationally or domestically. Immersive learning experiences exist within our sport, music, language, Arts and STEM programs.
Our unique Yarra Junction Campus is where students are challenged in an inspiring natural learning environment. Here they develop practical, leadership, and life skills — and consider the effect of their actions and lifestyle on the world around them.
Extensive co-curricular opportunities
Students can choose from an extensive range of programs supported by highly-credentialled specialists. Sport is a key element in the fabric of life at Caulfield Grammar School. And for students interested in The Arts, Caulfield Grammar offers endless opportunities for creative expression and growth in music, theatre, visual arts, and dance.
Boarding from Year 9
A place where our proud history meets the best of the future, Caulfield Grammar School is a boarding school dedicated to providing rural and international students with access to innovative learning programs since its foundation in 1881.
Caulfield Campus offers a boarding experience for Years 9 to 12 girls and boys, allowing siblings to board at the same school. Our boarding house, nestled in a school highly regarded for our thriving learning environment where students consistently achieve strong academic results. We support students to develop a ‘Mind for life’ and feel empowered, deeply engaged, and encouraged to follow whatever path they choose.
Caulfield Grammar School is authorised to deliver the International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years Programme (MYP). The MYP is a framework for how the disciplines and faculties work together to create a consistent language and experience for our students. It guides teaching and learning practices and delivers content specified by the Australian Curriculum, underpinned by a strong focus on Literacy and Numeracy.
Our middle years learning program comprises eight subject groups, providing a broad and balanced education for early adolescents. Students engage with big ideas, rather than simply memorising facts.
In an MYP learning space, students draw connections between subject disciplines that are explicitly linked to the world around them, contextualised and driven by each student’s understanding of concepts. MYP learning experiences examine global points of view wherever possible to promote understanding of other cultures, an awareness of the human condition, and an understanding that there is a commonality of human experience.
