Joining a community of emerging global citizens, most Caulfield Grammar graduates pursue tertiary studies in Australia or overseas after Year 12. Many have gone on to shape government policies, lead international businesses, perform on the world stage (both literally and figuratively), represent Australia at the Olympics and more.

Outstanding Facilities

Our state-of-the-art facilities provide the best possible learning environments. From modern classrooms and STEM laboratories to professional music and performance theatres and world-class sporting facilities, our students have access to everything they need to succeed and thrive.

One School, Multiple Campuses

Our students access the many benefits that come from the size and scale of a large school, while enjoying individualised academic and pastoral care at their chosen campus.

Caulfield Grammar School has a total of around 3,570 students and over 1,000 outstanding teachers, specialists and coaches across our three Melbourne metropolitan campuses: Wheelers Hill Campus (ELC to Year 12), Malvern Campus (ELC to Year 6) and Caulfield Campus (Years 7 to 12). Boarding school is offered at Caulfield Campus for 90 students from Year 9.

Broad and Balanced Experiences

With such a wide range of learning experiences, students have many opportunities to discover and pursue their passions, both academic and co-curricular. From playing in an orchestra to playing in a soccer team, from hiking in the Australian bush to navigating their schoolwork, each student learns skills that equip them for life. These opportunities focus on enjoyment through participation, as well as offering individual access to specialists to support and develop skills and capabilities for elite pathways. 

Quality Teaching

Our commitment to quality teaching attracts some of the most experienced, passionate and highly credentialled teachers in Australia. Both inside the classroom and out, our teachers and specialist staff nurture and instil a love of learning that continues long after our students leave school.

Cultural Immersion and Global Outlook

Caulfield Grammar has always been at the forefront of cultural immersion. In fact, our first international student, Wilkie Lum, joined us in 1911! We were also the first Australian school to establish a campus in China, opening our Nanjing campus in 1998.

We foster a global outlook in our students, strengthened by our International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years Programme and supported by programs such as Education Outdoors at Yarra Junction Campus, the award-winning Year 9 Kakadu Program, Year 10 Odyssey, and optional overseas experiences for students in Sport and The Arts.

We are committed to becoming the school of choice for local Indigenous families and lead through action on the path to tangible and meaningful reconciliation. Our Reconciliation Action Plan commits Caulfield Grammar School to a path of action that focuses on strengthening relationships, respect and opportunities in the classroom, around our school and with communities local to each of our campuses and programs.

A Strong Focus on Student Wellbeing and Child Safety

The safety and wellbeing of children, young people and students in our care will always be our first priority at Caulfield Grammar School. The School has zero tolerance for child abuse, and we aspire to have all students who attend the School and our boarding premises feeling and being safe.

We provide a nurturing and safe environment where students are supported by a proactive, responsive and integrated network of care. This includes strong partnerships between your child’s living environment – whether that be at home, in a Homestay or Boarding – and the School. Support systems are in place for each child’s emotional and mental wellbeing, along with extensive pastoral care underpinned by our School Values.

Pastoral care for overseas students is overseen by both the International Student Coordinator and the Head of House at each Secondary Campus. The International Student Coordinator works closely with the Head of House and other key staff to provide ongoing academic and pastoral support to the student, parents and caregivers. The International Student Coordinator also oversees the caregiver and accommodation arrangements of overseas students to ensure the care and safety of each student.

Developing a Mind for life

We nurture our young people to become capable, curious and emotionally aware, preparing them with the skills and capabilities they need to create whatever path in life they choose. We call this developing a ‘Mind for Life’.
