From The Principal

The Knox School is a very special place and I am proud of the values and vision that it represents and of the academic results achieved by our diverse group of students.

The Knox School is a community which fosters a love of learning and an appreciation of individual achievement.

The Knox School continues to be a place where scholastic achievement and achievement in the co-curricular fields are recognised and applauded by fellow students, staff and the wider community.

Please read on about our School and call us with any questions you may have.
Mr Allan Shaw, Principal

Our School

The Knox School has four sub schools all on one beautiful campus in Melbourne's leafy eastern suburbs just a stone's throw from the EastLink freeway making us easily accessible from many parts of Melbourne.

Junior School - Pre-Prep to Year 4
Lower Middle School - Years 5 to 7
Upper Middle School - Years 8 and 9
Senior College - Years 10 to 12

Academic Excellence

The Knox School prides itself in academic excellence both in our VCE results and in our NAPLAN results which show that 95% of our students are above the state average. All of our 2011 graduates received a tertiary placement.

Pastoral Care

With 800 students across our entire campus and with class sizes capped at 24 (and many considerably less) The Knox School is a place where every student is known and valued.

Our students' health and wellbeing are just as important to us as their academic outcome.
