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. Offering ELC to Year 12 at our Wheelers Hill Campus, your child is provided with continuity of learning throughout their entire school journey. 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
In the ELC and junior years, learning experiences and spaces are designed to cultivate creativity, curiosity, connection and compassion. Our new Junior School development provides state-of-the-art learning environments that offer flexibility and integrated indoor and outdoor learning. 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 environment 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 skills, leadership skills, 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.
Caulfield Grammar School is authorised to deliver the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP) at our Wheelers Hill Campus and Malvern Campus.
The inquiry based IB PYP framework guides the delivery of the Australian Curriculum. It is designed for 3–12-year-olds and provides a comprehensive research-based curriculum framework of global significance. It is an international, transdisciplinary, concept-driven, inquiry-based programme.
We believe students learn best when they understand the ‘why’ and ‘how’, not just the ‘what’. By focusing on the development of conceptual understandings and transdisciplinary skills, students understand core concepts so they can apply them in other areas. This not only helps in grasping ideas, it also encourages students to extend their thinking as they build on what they have learned.
Caulfield Grammar School is authorised to deliver the International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years Programme (MYP) at our Wheelers Hill Campus and Caulfield Campus. 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
