from Australia and overseas. The head of
boarding, the deputy head of boarding,
their families and residential staff ensure
that boarders are helped to feel secure in a
supportive and caring environment.
Caulfield Grammar School is one of very
few schools in metropolitan Melbourne
(and the only member of the Victorian
Association of Public Schools) to offer
boarding facilities to both girls and boys —
sisters and brothers.
Families may also wish to consider homestay
arrangements as an alternative to boarding.
teachers and coaches
Specialist teachers and coaches operate
in all areas of the learning program.
Teachers are supported by the school’s own
strategic and focused weekly professional
development sessions — an approach
to deliver quality teaching and therefore
quality learning for all students.
VCE from Year 10
Year 10 students at Caulfield Grammar are
able to include in their course of study VCE
units suited to their interests and abilities.
This means in effect that the VCE is spread
over three years rather than two, enabling
students to best tailor their learning for
these three critical senior years.
At Year 9 a range of holistic, active,
experiential programs are designed to
engage students with real-world learning
Caulfield Grammar School is a school
with a true international perspective. The
school’s own international campus in China,
its custom of reaching out to best-practice
schools from around the world to share
ideas and, importantly, the understanding
of the valuable exchange that occurs
through inviting international students to
study at Caulfield Grammar are examples
of this. It encourages cultural diversity and
internationalism, and has for many years
allocated places to girls and boys from
As one school with five campuses, Caulfield
Grammar offers a broader range of learning
experiences and resources than is available
at most schools. The shared expertise
of a large group of specialist staff, top
quality facilities and the support of a large
community network are clear advantages
Caulfield Grammar has links with
Melbourne’s major universities, providing
students with the opportunity to undertake
first-year university subjects whilst still
attending secondary school.
Students at Caulfield have a history of
strong academic results in the Victorian
Certificate of Education (VCE) — Victoria’s
internationally recognised senior school
experiences. Problem-based learning
experiences are created to suit students’
development. It involves learning by doing
and applies skills and concepts learnt in
core subjects to real personal and societal
Year 9 students are offered the amazing
opportunity of living and learning in
another country for five weeks, based at
the school’s Nanjing Campus in China.
Internationalism recognises that Caulfield’s
students are members of a growing global
community. Our belief is that the most
effective means of preparing students for
this challenge is through the intensive study
of another culture.
Historically, Yarra Junction Campus (or YJ, as
it is affectionately known) has always been
the site for education outdoors, adventure
activities and farm studies (the campus
includes a commercial dairy farm), but in
more recent times the campus has also
become an exemplar of sustainable living.
The Earth Studies Centre and the students’
eco-cabins are powered by renewable
resources, and learning activities explore
students’ impact on their environment.
Caulfield Grammar School has introduced
an extra teacher to every Year 7 and
Year 8 class. Each girl and boy now has a
learning mentor who closely monitors and
supports them in their academic and social
development. That means two qualified
teachers in core classes — a subject
specialist and a learning mentor.
Girls and boys can board at the school’s
Caulfield Campus, where accommodation
is provided for approximately 100 students
