WELCOME TO Peninsula
The Peninsula School is a day and boarding school for approximately 1450 students from three-year-old Kindergarten to Year 12.
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.
Our congratulations go to the members of the Class of 2014 for their fine VCE results.

We especially acknowledge the following students who recorded perfect scores in the subjects shown:Daniel Westell (Further Maths), Vo Mai Linh (Physics), Derek He (Economics), Lydia Waycott (Geography), Nguyen Le Van Khanh (Maths Methods), Phan Minh Duc (Maths Methods).
