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.

 

2014 VCE Results



 

Kelsie and Ben - equal top in the State!

Congratulations go to our joint Duces for 2014, Nguyen Le Van Khanh (Kelsie) and Lam Nhat Hung (Ben), who joined the elite group of 33 students state-wide who recorded perfect ATAR scores of 99.95.

Well done to the Class of 2014

Our congratulations go to the members of the Class of 2014 for their fine VCE results. It was particularly pleasing to note the large number of students who had recorded personal bests when their results were received. 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).

Impressively, 7 students received ATARs of 99+. Furthermore, 30% of our students received ATARs of 90+, placing them in the top 10% of the State. The cohort’s median Study Score was an excellent 34.0.

We are particularly delighted that the girls’ median ATAR score for 2014 was 82.5 which is an outstanding result, confirming that girls do indeed flourish in fully coeducational schools.

We will proudly follow the future pathways of the Class of 2014 with great interest.

Stuart Johnston

Principal
