New to Year 7

In 2017 our Year 7 group will have a much greater focus on House-based activities to create a stronger sense of belonging and House spirit and they will also have co-educational and single gender classes for Maths and English.

Proudly announcing our partnership with Frankston Arts Centre

We are pleased to announce an exciting partnership with the Frankston Arts Centre. As the Children's Program partner we have access to the incredible line up of children performances and special backstage events including sessions with the cast and crew.

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.

Our Prospectus: Learn. Grow. Flourish!


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

  Volume 2, Flourish - The Learning Blueprint provides further detail and insight into life at The Peninsula School.

Please take the time to browse 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.

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.




2016 ATAR results

We are incredibly proud of our Year 12 students who did exceptionally well in their VCE results.

Congratulations to Linh Nguyen and Noah Szto who are our 2016 Duces, both achieving an amazing 99.90.

Other students to be congratulated on their significant achievements include Alex Luu (99.75), Andrew Dodd (99.45), Alexandra Karamesinis (99.40) and Jerry Yu (99.20).

With 152 students completing VCE this year we had an exceptionally talented, enthusiastic and hard working group of students who all strived to achieve their personal best. Almost 75% of the year level received an ATAR score that placed them in the top 30% of the State – that is a huge achievement for this large cohort.

Some highlights include:
6 students achieve above 99.00 (4%)
15 students achieve 95 or higher (10%)
38 students achieve 90 or higher (25%)
54 students achieve 85 or higher (35%)
112 students achieve 70 or higher (73.6%).

My thanks go to our dedicated staff and parents who supported these students through their Peninsula School journey.
