Welcome to Caulfield Grammar School


We are a five-campus school with 3320 students, 700 full-time and part-time employees and over 400 sports coaches.

Our size and scale afford us the privilege to provide a vast range of broad and balanced programs to our students and staff. And yet, because students are spread over multiple campuses, we don’t feel ‘too big’. We have all of the benefits of scale, without students ever feeling like a small fish in a big pond.

Day-to-day school takes place at a choice of three Melbourne campuses: Caulfield, Wheelers Hill and Malvern. Our campuses in Yarra Junction and Nanjing offer specialist education programs for our students.

Established in 1881 Caulfield Grammar School is a pre-eminent independent co-educational school in Melbourne, Australia.
