WELCOME TO Peninsula 

The Peninsula School is a day and boarding school for approximately 1450 students from three-year-old Kindergarten to Year 12.

At The Peninsula School we see learning not just as a path to university and a career, but also as a path to pleasure. The books we read, the science we absorb, the languages we learn, the artistic, sporting and musical skills we acquire are the tools that enable us to fulfil our potential.

The best education is not about cramming for exams but preparing young people for life in all its aspects. Our aim is to help each child in our school community reach their potential. We achieve this by rigorous attention to academic outcomes combined with an extensive co-curricular program. Our Year 12 students consistently achieve above State averages at VCE. In 2013, 21 of our VCE students ranked in the top 5% in Victoria; and 46 ranked in the top 10%, with the Class of 2013 recording a median ATAR of 81.7, an outstanding result.

Our international students benefit from the specialised facility of our English Language Centre, where they can hone their English skills before entering the mainstream classrooms. We also have 500 students studying on two campuses in China, where their excellent VCE results help them achieve a university place in the highly competitive Chinese system, or they can choose to study in Australia.

Our co-curricular activities include a highly respected music and drama program, sporting opportunities, a House program, unsurpassed pastoral care, a well defined code of behaviour and a well developed sense of community.

Our students' achievements are testament to the dedication and expertise of our teachers, who enjoy a close relationship with their students at all year levels. This personal knowledge gives them a good appreciation of what each student needs, educationally and socially. We continue to be justifiably proud of the well-rounded, well-educated, considerate and community-minded young people who constitute our past and present student body.

If you would like to find out how your child can join our school community, please contact our Admissions Office or phone 9788 7777 for more information or to arrange a tour.


Introducing our
new Prospectus:
Learn. Grow. Flourish!

It has been great to see our new Prospectus, Learn. Grow. Flourish! in the hands of prospective families since our Open Day in July.  Access to a flipbook e-version of it will be available on the refreshed website, which is coming soon. In the meantime you can preview PDFs of this brand new publication here.

Volume 1, Flourish - The Learning Purpose tells the School’s story in a nutshell through stunning images and an accompanying narrative (PDF, 7.8mb).

Volume 2, Flourish - The Learning Blueprint provides further detail and insight into life at The Peninsula School (PDF, 4.8mb).

These companion Volumes, which also stand alone, both point current and prospective families to our website for even more information.

Please take the time to familiarise yourself with both volumes and then share them with your friends and family. They are a great way to let the wider community know about the outstanding, holistic education available at our School.
