A supportive learning environment
We support our learners to feel empowered and deeply engaged, ensuring a successful transition from Junior School to Middle School.
Recognising the significant and often rapid changes that occur in early adolescence – and the transition from primary to secondary schooling life – all educators at Caulfield Grammar work closely to provide a caring environment for our learners to thrive.
Specialist teams of teachers provide support for wellbeing while also assisting in the academic learning program. These teachers are committed to delivering learning programs using the styles of learning best suited to early adolescence for girls and boys.
Our highly qualified and knowledgeable educators draw upon a world of current and emerging expertise.
Informed by current research and innovative practice, our comprehensive teaching program supports learners to broaden their perspectives, take risks and creatively realise their aspirations for the future as confident lifelong learners.
As lifelong learners themselves, our teachers undertake weekly professional development with a focus on evidence-based, quality teaching and learning.
We are authorised to deliver the International Baccalaureate® (IB) Middle Years Programme
Caulfield Grammar School is authorised to deliver the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (MYP) at our Wheelers Hill and Caulfield campuses.
Excellent facilities and co-curricular activities support an extensive learning program that includes information technology, languages, sciences, humanities, the Arts, Sports, and much more.
Dedicated Learning Mentors for Years 7 and 8
The Learning Mentor is a qualified teacher who attends each core subject class every day, in addition to the subject specialist teacher.
They monitor the academic and pastoral progress of each child in their allocated class group, focusing on both knowing the learning style of each child and on ensuring each child’s experience is the best it can be.
This means there are two teachers in each Year 7 and Year 8 class in all core subjects, promoting better teaching and learning.
Through a structured program, Learning Mentors provide valuable information about the progress of each individual student to the classroom teachers, pastoral care staff and through them, also to parents. The Learning Mentors also work closely with the school’s Special Education specialists to ensure the needs of individual students are being met across learning areas.
Caulfield Grammar School was the first school to introduce this innovative practice at Secondary level.
Year 9 Expedition Program
Cultural immersion and outdoor education are core to a Caulfield Grammar education.
Students ‘learn by doing’ through authentic real-world learning experiences, connection and collaboration – immersing in diverse cultures to develop skills to navigate our rapidly changing world, whether internationally or domestically.
Our Internationalism program is currently unavailable due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
A new Year 9 Expedition Program based in the Northern Territory continues our commitment to cultural immersion learning experiences for students.
