Turning a mind for sport into a mind for life
At Caulfield Grammar School we believe that sport plays an integral role in the social, emotional and physical development of our students. We are dedicated to creating a sporting culture that focuses on enjoyment, participation and community.
Our Sport program is compulsory for Years 5 to 12 and equips our students with essential life skills to develop and maintain their health and wellbeing, as well as create a lifelong love of sport. Students compete in both the prestigious Associated Public Schools of Victoria (APS) and Associated Grammar Schools of Victoria (AGSV) competitions, as well as a range of sport-specific regional, state and national interschool competitions.
There are also opportunities for students to participate in House sports, sports camps and tours both within Australia and internationally, as well as represent Caulfield Grammar School in a range of other sports including Human Powered Racing, Fencing, Golf, Snow Sports and more.

*When a senior student is not taking part in a competitive season of Sport, they will be involved in the recreational physical activity program, which includes range of physical activities. The program is conducted during training time and does not involve a Saturday commitment.
**The GAP Program is a multisport introductory program offering the opportunity for students to experience a range of sports, delivered by experienced coaches, throughout the Spring Season. There is no Saturday commitment for those students that select the GAP program.
