Lauriston Girls’ School is a forward-thinking, independent K-12 school. Our innovative and experiential pedagogy, combined with a comprehensive wellbeing program, work together to provide a well-rounded educational experience that encourages students to achieve their best. Lauriston values good teaching and, combined with the latest technology, each girl can learn at her own pace and be ready for the challenges that lie ahead.
Diploma Programme (DP)
Lauriston provides students with choice in their senior years of school; students can complete either the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) or International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma programme. Students receive extensive support in the lead-up to this decision, including information evenings and one-on-one discussions the IB and/or VCE Coordinators. The Heads of House are also available to talk with students, as well as the Head of Senior School.
The transition to these final years is structured to be as smooth as possible, with students completing a week of their next year’s studies in the final week of Term 4. The School also holds information sessions for both students and parents before and after the programme’s commencement and provides girls with regular feedback on their progress.
The IB programme at Lauriston covers a wide range of subjects. These currently include English A Literature, Chinese A Literature, English B, French B, Chinese B, Spanish B ab initio, Economics, Geography, History, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics (HL and SL), Music, Theatre and Visual Arts.
